Glenwood Transfer Station now open Sundays - 04/08/21

Customers who utilize Lane County’s Glenwood transfer station this summer can visit the facility seven days a week. The site – which is operated by Lane County Waste Management – is now open Sundays from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

 

Lane County’s Marcola, Oakridge, Rattlesnake and Vida-Leaburg transfer sites have also expanded hours from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday. These are summer hours and will be effective through September 30, 2021.


Glenwood is located at 3100 E. 17th Avenue south of Franklin Boulevard and serves residents and businesses from Eugene and Springfield. Lane County is recommending residents take advantage of the expanded hours to avoid peak days like Monday and Saturday, from mid-morning through early afternoon. Avoiding these times and days allows staff to process customers more quickly, while helping customers continue to social distance and keep each other safe.

 

In addition to accepting garbage, the transfer station takes a wide variety of materials for recycling.

 

Accepted are appliances, antifreeze, cans, cardboard, clean wood, fluorescent bulbs and lamps, glass bottles and jars, motor oil, plastic milk jugs, scrap metal, yard waste and more.

 

Lane County’s Waste Management Division operates as part of the Lane County Public Works Division. The Glenwood facility is one of fifteen recycling and waste transfer stations throughout the county; garbage taken to the site is then hauled to Short Mountain Landfill, the County’s only permitted municipal landfill.

Commissioners vote to create fee waiver program for Holiday Farm Fire survivors - 04/07/21

Today, the Lane County Board of Commissioners has approved a land use, sanitation and building permits fee waiver program for Holiday Farm Fire survivors to help people rebuild. The Board also approved adding 6.0 FTE to the Land Management Division to help process applications.

 

“We are committed to removing barriers to rebuilding wherever we can,” said East Lane Commissioner Heather Buch. “By waiving the cost of permit fees and increasing staff we hope to help fire survivors return home more quickly and at a lower cost.”

 

The fee waivers will be available for a five-year period to the original owners of dwellings at the time they were destroyed. The fee waivers are also available to relatives of the original property owners if ownership has been transferred to a relative since the fire.

 

Fee waivers will apply to:

  • primary residences
  • second homes
  • temporary medical hardship dwellings
  • rental properties

 

Fees will be waived for:

  • building and sanitation permits that may be required to reconstruct or repair lawfully established dwellings that were damaged or destroyed by the Holiday Farm Fire.
  • the following Type 1 planning applications when they are required to enable the repair or replacement of a damaged or destroyed dwelling:
    • floodplain verification (office)
    • floodplain development permit
    • fill or removal permit
    • riparian declaration
    • temporary hardship dwelling
    • Type 1 legal lot determination

 

The fee waiver program is retroactive and the cost of qualifying permits will be reimbursed to those who have already paid.

 

The full board packet with more information is available at www.mckenzierebuilds.org/fees.

New Vaccine Scheduling System

 

Following the announcement from the Oregon Health Authority, effective today Lane County Public Health has rolled out a new system for scheduling vaccination appointments to address the increased eligibility groups and prepare for vaccinating all who become eligible by May 1.

 

Essentially, this system removes the preregistration requirement and has removed the need to wait for an email invitation to schedule an appointment. 

 

Now all Lane County residents who are currently eligible will be able to schedule a vaccine appointment directly by visiting:

 

www.LaneCounty.org/vaxclinics

 

Please note: vaccine dose supplies remain limited, so when you log onto schedule a vaccine appointment, clinics may not have time slots available. Please be patient and keep checking the website if you can’t schedule a dose on your first try. We are expecting an increase in doses. 

 

FAQ: 

 

Q) I preregistered, do I need to register again? What will happen to the preregistration list?

 

A) The preregistration system is no longer necessary and will no longer be used to send vaccine scheduling email invitations. There is no need for people to register again. In the past, Lane County sent invitations via email to eligible individuals who preregistered with a link to a page where they could schedule a time to get a vaccine. This new system removes the need to receive an email. Instead, anyone who is eligible can simply log into www.lanecounty.org/vaxclinics to schedule their dose.

 

Q) What happens to the preregistration database? 

 

A) Lane County will “decommission” the list and we will no longer be sending weekly email updates. Instead, individuals wishing to receive weekly updates about the vaccine process should sign-up for the Lane County Public Health Vaccine Newsletter. 

 

Q) How will you know of someone is eligible/insure that only eligible people are receiving a dose? 

 

A) When an individual clicks on the scheduling link located on the Vax Clinics website, that indivisible will first be taken to a list of the eligible groups and asked to attest that they are part of one of the groups that are currently eligible. 

 

Q) What about people who have been eligible for awhile (seniors, 1A)? Will they lose their chance to receive a vaccine?

 

A) The opposite is true. We will be holding back doses to insure we always have a supply for them and making a concerted effort to get those folks vaccinated. This includes doing outbound calling, doing more community-based clinics, and assisting seniors and 1A individuals in finding a dose. 

 

 

Who is eligible now?

Phase 1A, Phase 1B, Groups 1-6. We will continue our commitment to vaccinating those 65+ and in Phase 1A by reserving doses for these groups, while offering doses to newly eligible groups.

 

The Oregon Health Authority determines the priority and eligibility criteria for COVID19 vaccination. Lane County Public Health is currently scheduling Lane County residents:

 

Phase 1a, all groups

Phase 1b, groups 1-5

Phase 1b, group 6

New Vaccine Scheduling System

 

Following the announcement from the Oregon Health Authority, effective today Lane County Public Health has rolled out a new system for scheduling vaccination appointments to address the increased eligibility groups and prepare for vaccinating all who become eligible by May 1.

 

Essentially, this system removes the preregistration requirement and has removed the need to wait for an email invitation to schedule an appointment. 

 

As of today, March 23rd all Lane County residents who are currently eligible (see list below) will be able to schedule a vaccine appointment directly by visiting:

 

www.LaneCounty.org/vaxclinics

 

Please note: vaccine dose supplies remain limited, so when you log onto schedule a vaccine appointment, clinics may not have time slots available. Please be patient and keep checking the website if you can’t schedule a dose on your first try. We are expecting an increase in doses. 

 

FAQ: 

 

Q) I preregistered, do I need to register again? What will happen to the preregistration list?

 

A) The preregistration system is no longer necessary and will no longer be used to send vaccine scheduling email invitations. There is no need for people to register again. In the past, Lane County sent invitations via email to eligible individuals who preregistered with a link to a page where they could schedule a time to get a vaccine. This new system removes the need to receive an email. Instead, anyone who is eligible can simply log into www.lanecounty.org/vaxclinics to schedule their dose.

 

Q) What happens to the preregistration database? 

 

A) Lane County will “decommission” the list and we will no longer be sending weekly email updates. Instead, individuals wishing to receive weekly updates about the vaccine process should sign-up for the Lane County Public Health Vaccine Newsletter. 

 

Q) How will you know of someone is eligible/insure that only eligible people are receiving a dose? 

 

A) When an individual clicks on the scheduling link located on the Vax Clinics website, that indivisible will first be taken to a list of the eligible groups and asked to attest that they are part of one of the groups that are currently eligible. 

 

Q) What about people who have been eligible for awhile (seniors, 1A)? Will they lose their chance to receive a vaccine?

 

A) The opposite is true. We will be holding back doses to insure we always have a supply for them and making a concerted effort to get those folks vaccinated. This includes doing outbound calling, doing more community-based clinics, and assisting seniors and 1A individuals in finding a dose. 

 

 

Who is eligible now?

We will continue our commitment to vaccinating those 65+ and in Phase 1A by reserving doses for these groups, while offering doses to newly eligible groups.

 

The Oregon Health Authority determines the priority and eligibility criteria for COVID19 vaccination. Lane County Public Health is currently scheduling Lane County residents:

 

Phase 1a, all groups

Phase 1b, groups 1-5

Phase 1b, group 6

Data regarding Lane County testing, patient status, case ZIP codes and more is available at www.LaneCountyOR.gov/localdata

 

 

The State of Oregon has created a COVID-19 web page with resources at http://coronavirus.oregon.gov.

 

 

High Risk Individuals who had contact with these community members will be contacted by Lane County Public Health so they can work with their health care providers on next steps. Communicable disease investigations are underway. If a public contact exposure point is identified, that information will be shared with the public.

 

 

 

* Presumptive cases are people without a positive PCR test who have COVID-19-like symptoms and had close contact with a confirmed case. Though not confirmed by a positive diagnostic test, presumptive cases have a high likelihood of having COVID-19 because of the specific nature of the symptoms and known exposure.
