Date added for Umatilla Solid Waste Information Outreach Open House

RELEASE DATE: January 27, 2014

UMATILLA – The residential curbside garbage-collection service in unincorporated Lake County is changing effective Monday, Oct. 6. The county has been conducting Solid Waste Information Outreach Open Houses countywide, and has added a session in Umatilla. 

The Umatilla Open House is set for 10 a.m. – noon on Saturday, Feb. 22 at North Lake Community Park, Pavilion 2, 40730 Roger Giles Road, Umatilla.

The new service will offer residents a 1-1-1 curbside collection program, which consists of once-per-week trash, one-per-week recycling and once-per-week yard waste collection.

The new program also will provide homeowners with two carts; one for trash and one for recycling at no additional cost. Maintenance of the cart is also included at no cost. Homeowners will be given the option of choosing from three different cart sizes, 95, 65 or 35 gallon, in order to accommodate varying family needs.

To learn more about the 1-1-1 curbside collection program, the County will continue hosting open house meetings throughout the months of January and February for residents. All future open house meetings are from 4 – 7 p.m. except for Umatilla, which is from 10 a.m. – noon, on the following dates:
