Cannon Beach, Seaside, Gearhart and Warrenton have been operating temporary storm debris collection points within each town's city limits. There have been some changes as to what materials are being accepted in some of the communities:
Cannon Beach is accepting woody debris ("green waste") and spoiled food at its East Second Street site.
Seaside is allowing drop off of woody debris, demolition debris and spoiled food at its site south of Coast Hardware, just off U.S. Highway 101.
Gearhart is allowing drop off of woody debris across from the fire station on Pacific Way.
Warrenton is allowing drop off of woody debris only at the Warrenton Marina parking lot. This drop-off will be closing after Monday and Warrenton residents will be encouraged to haul their trees, shrubs and limbs to the Astoria Transfer Station, where they will continue to be accepted free.
All communities allowing local drop off of storm debris ask that no household trash or household hazardous materials be discarded at these collection points, which are there to primarily assist people in the immediate removal of fallen trees, limbs, brush, and small amounts of debris that may have come off their houses, garages and fences in the storm.
The Astoria Transfer Station, on Williamsport Road, will continue to accept woody debris at no cost through Dec. 31. All other materials will be charged according to regular rates. The transfer station is normally open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
Western Oregon Waste has drop boxes and rental containers available for residential and commercial storm clean up. For service requests, or for information, call 861-0578.
