    Coats for Kids

    Coats for Kids – 2017

    The Eugene Active 20-30 Club is conducting their annual Coats for Kids project from through October 27th. Lane Apex is proud to be a partner in helping get coats for the needy children in Lane County. Often children in our area go without warm winter gear because their families cannot afford to purchase a new or used winter coat. Last year the Active 20-30 Club supplied coats through agencies such as Birth to Three, Head Start, The Relief Nursery & SCAR/Jasper Mountain to name a few and still were not able to fill all the requests they had. Can you help this year? Now through October 27th, Lane Apex will be accepting donations of new and used coats at our office (2399 Hwy 99, Eugene, OR—just a quarter mile south of Beltline) and our drivers will also be able to take coat donation on our regular routes to make it easy for you to help:

    •Just place a new or used coat in a plastic bag and mark it “Coats for Kids”. The drivers will pick these up and we will make sure they get to the needy children in our area.

    •There is a significant need for infant and toddler sizes as there are many request for these sizes of coats.

    •For more information, check the Eugene 20-30 Club’s website – www.eugene2030.org

    Haul Away Hunger

    Lane Apex Disposal has teamed up with Food for Lane County to sponsor “Haul Away Hunger” food collection drive in the month of September for residential customers in the areas in which we provide service. During the week of September 18th – 22nd, Lane Apex drivers will pickup canned food donations at curbside. Customers should set out the canned food in a plastic or paper grocery bag marked “FLC” next to the red recycle bin when they place their carts out for collection on their regular service day. Please DO NOT put the bag in the bin. We will also be accepting food and monetary donations at our office, at 2399 Hwy 99 in Eugene, for the entire month of September if residents are unable or miss putting out food donations at the curb. We want to encourage all our customers to help us “Haul Away Hunger” in our community.

    Severe Weather Delayed Schedule – January 2017

    Collection Schedule for Friday January 6th:

     We are currently working on schedule today to complete our routes in the Danebo, River Rd & Coburg Rd areas.  We will be attempting to pickup customers in the low lying areas of South Eugene (Wednesday, Thursday & Friday routes) today as long as road conditions allow safe operations.

    Due to the icy conditions and slick roads caused by the winter storm – we will NOT be operating residential collection routes in the hill areas of South Eugene until roads conditions are safe enough to conduct operations.

    We will be working as quickly as possible in spite of the bad road conditions to complete the routes. We ask for your patience and for you to do the following:

    • PLACE YOUR CARTS OUT FOR COLLECTION ON YOUR NORMAL PICKUP DAY.
    • IF YOU ARE IN SOUTH EUGENE HILL AREAS (Wed, Thur, or Friday) & YOUR CARTS DO NOT GET EMPTIED ON YOUR NORMAL DAY this week –  Please set carts out on your next regular collection day and we will take all extra items trash and recycle items at no additional cost next week.
    • We are unable to haul yard debris during these cold temperatures as the material freezes in the carts and we need all available trucks to collect trash and recycling. As such if your yard debris does not get emptied on the normal schedule this week, we will collect it on your next regularly scheduled pickup week. We apologize for this inconvenience.

    **We will continue to update the website news as we are able, so please check back.
