High Wind Warning!
Windy days in the Tualatin Valley often result in missing trash bins
and lids, and trash and recyclables blown about the area. We want to
assure you that we make every effort to secure your bins once we have
emptied them. We also do all we can to prevent items from blowing away
and we even pick up material (as much as is practical) when a bin has
blown over or been tipped over by dogs or other animals.
Some bins and lids are more prone to flight than others -- the bins
we distribute have attached lids so they can't blow away, and they're
heavier than most consumer bins. If you have recurring problems with
missing bins or lids, you might want to consider using one of our supplied
bins. (See rates)
We ask you to try to secure paper recycling by placing heavier items
on top of it or using a brick or other heavy object to weigh the paper
You can also help by placing your bins near a mailbox pillar or other fixed object to stabilize them.
One of the best ways to prevent problems is to get the emptied bins
back to their normal location as soon as possible on windy days. If
you're not going to be home, perhaps a neighbor could help.
Thanks for your help in solving this ongoing problem. For more information,
feel free to call the office at 503-531-6330 or email us
