Come Again Some Other Day!
With all this wet weather, it is hard to believe that it is already the middle of May. Here at Grimm’s, we are looking forward to some sunshine and warmer days. It is past time to get out there and start working in the flower beds. Remember, yard debris disposal is free for our Pony Ridge / Angel Haven neighbors. Soil and compost are also free, so it is time to get out there and start working in the yard!
Free Yard Debris Disposal Day.
May 14, 2022, is free dump day for all Tualatin area residents. The hours are 9:00am – 2:00pm. If you don’t get around to it this time, there will be another free dump day in October. Don’t forget to bring a small donation of food for the Tualatin Food Pantry. Currently, the Pantry’s most urgent needs include: canned fruits (no applesauce please), canned vegetables, canned meals (spaghettios, ravioli, chili, etc), boxed macaroni and cheese, peanut butter, cereal, dried beans, bags of rice, bulk cooking/baking items (ex: flour, salt, sugar, spices), and hygiene items such as toilet paper, shampoo/conditioner, bar soap, toothpaste, feminine products, and powdered laundry soap (bulk is fine!)
The shortage of hemlock barkdust continues so anyone who wants this premium ground cover needs to act soon. We still have some in stock, but it is going fast!
Our state-of-the-art composting facility continues to meet and exceed all design parameters and is producing fantastic compost! Using compost enhances soil quality, helps save water, and supports our community’s efforts to recycle yard debris. All of this helps to conserve our natural resources, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, and reduces the amount of material sent to the landfill.
