Japanese Beetle yard debris site closed for the winter

The Japanese beetle yard debris drop off site at Northwest Landscape Services in Hillsboro will be CLOSING for the Fall and Winter on Friday, October 4. Northwest Landscape services will not be used for the Japanese beetle yard debris in 2020, and we will notify everyone with the new location of the yard debris drop off site before the quarantine starts again.

The reason for the closure is the reduced risk of spreading adult beetles during the fall and winter. Other businesses in the area that handle yard debris waste can take loads from the quarantine area during the closure. Curbside yard debris will continue to be redirected to the Hillsboro Landfill as part of the Japanese beetle eradication and containment project. Please continue to use your curbside bins normally.

Fall leaves

Also, loads of fall leaves DO NOT need to be taken to the Japanese beetle yard debris drop off site in Hillsboro. Loads of fallen leaves are not a risk to spread Japanese beetle and are not part of the quarantined material.

If you have any questions, please contact the project coordinator Ashley Toland at 503-881-5198 or atoland@oda.state.or.us. Thank you for your cooperation.
