City to Hold Free Leaf Drop-Off Day for Canby Residents

For those in the process of digging themselves out from their yard trees’ annual fall bounty, we have good news: The City of Canby is holding a free leaf drop-off day from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 20 at the Canby Public Works facility, located at 1470 North Territorial Road.

Public Works will accept leaves only — and ask that residents please ensure there are no sticks or yard debris in their drop-off materials. Loose leaves will be accepted from trailers or truck beds or bagged in biodegradable paper bags.

The event is for Canby residents only, and proof of residency will be required. Please no businesses or contractors.

“The city has wanted to provide this service for a long time, and I want to thank City Administrator Scott Archer for allowing us to provide this benefit to the community,” said Public Works Director Jerry Nelzen.

“It is great to be able to provide a location for residents to drop their leaves. We were able to see how the drop-off points helped during the ice storm and that enabled us to put this leaf drop-off into motion.”

The Canby Public Works department hopes providing this service to residents will help support the local community, as well as help to reduce the wear and tear on the city’s street sweeper.

“We are excited to see the turnout we have for this drop-off event,” Nelzen said. “Hopefully, we can provide more of these events in the future.”
