Strube Flats on the Willamette National Forest is no longer accepting organic yard debris from McKenzie River residents

Blue River, Ore., Jan. 14, 2021 – Strube Flats on the McKenzie River Ranger District will no longer be accepting organic yard debris for disposal beginning Jan. 15, 2021. This service was temporary in nature and was set up to benefit community cleanup efforts after the Holiday Farm Fire. 

“Free organic debris disposal was a service to the community that was a small cost to residents and partners with a big benefit to those affected by the fire,” said McKenzie River District Ranger Darren Cross. “We are starting the process of chipping the debris and staging additional danger trees from the Oregon Department of Transportation’s (ODOT) phase two cleanup of Highway 126.”

The Strube Flats area has multiple piles and large log decks. Large log volumes are anticipated to arrive and depart daily with a lot of heavy equipment traffic. People are asked to avoid the 1900-410 Road and Strube Flats area.
