The season is changing, which means leaves are falling from trees all around Clark County. Residents of Vancouver and Clark County can dispose of up to five cubic yards of leaves for free with coupons provided by Clark County Public Works and the city of Vancouver. Coupons must be filled out to be eligible for free leaf disposal.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, coupons are not available for pickup at public facilities. Community members are encouraged to print-out, clip out or get coupons in advance.

Coupons must be presented at the drop-off site and are for leaves only. Regular disposal fees apply to leaves mixed with other yard debris.
Clark County reminds residents not to blow, rake, sweep or dump leaves onto streets, where they can block storm drains, cause flooding, and create driving hazards. Blowing, raking, sweeping or dumping leaves onto county roads is littering and violates county code.
To help prevent flooding on neighborhood streets with relatively light traffic, residents can clear clogged storm drains by standing on a safe location away from traffic and using a rake or other garden tool to pull leaves from the path of flowing waterResidents should not try to clear storm drains on busy streets. Call Clark County Public Works at 564-397-2446 to report clogged storm drains or flooding on busy streets outside city limits.
