'The ice did a lot of damage ... but I'd predict Christmas trees probably within a week'
EUGENE, Ore. -- Some people took advantage of Monday's clear skies for yard work, cleaning up debris from last week's ice storm.
It’s also keeping Rexius Recycling pretty busy.
Rexius says they were pleasantly surprised to see heavy traffic flow throughout their facility in west Eugene Monday.
A yard supervisor said not too many Christmas trees have been handed over yet, but yard workers were busy with car after car pulling in with plenty of storm debris.
While yard work the day after Christmas might not be the first thing on your mind, Monday's partly cloudy weather gave these folks an opportunity for easier clean up.
"60-year-old pear tree the whole tree fell over. It was a sixty. This tree was here before we even moved in the house," said Rexius customer Bruce Davidson.
"The ice did a lot of damage, so that's the bulk of our business right now, but I'd predict Christmas trees probably within a week," said Rexius yard supervisor Kevin Roemer.
If you're looking to turn in your Christmas tree or yard debris, Rexius Recycling charges $5 per cubic yard or $5 per Christmas tree.
If you're holding off on taking down the tree until after the new year, Rexius will be open New Year’s Eve until 2 p.m., but closed on New Year’s Day.
They're located on Highway 99 in west Eugene.
