TUALATIN, Ore. — The winter storm that hit the Portland metro area last weekend brought down a lot of trees and the city of Tualatin has opened three drop-off sites where people can deposit their debris from the storm for free.

The drop-off locations will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Monday at Atfalati Park, Brown’s Ferry Park and Ibach Park. People wanting to drop off storm debris must prove their Tualatin residence.

Those who can’t access the drop-off locations are asked to neatly stack debris tightly against the curb. The city said to make sure the debris isn't blocking the road or storm drains and that it’s away from trees, poles, fire hydrants or other structures. The city said it’s working on a plan to remove debris stacked against the curb.
