Yamhill County Sheriff's Office



4th Annual Clean Up the Mountain Event To Be Held on June 23, 2018

 
The Yamhill County Sheriff’s Office, in cooperation with the BLM (Bureau of Land Management) and SOLVE (Stop Oregon Litter and Vandalism) invites the public to come help clean up public lands at the 4th Annual Bald Mountain Forest Clean-up event on Saturday, June 23rd, 2018. We ask you to meet at the Sheridan Peak kiosk on Bald Mountain Road at 8:30 a.m., to pick up trash large and small. We will be serving BBQ Hot Dogs, chips and water for all the volunteers beginning at 11:00 a.m.
 
Volunteers should wear a long sleeve shirt, long pants, work gloves and sturdy shoes or work boots. Bring rain gear, just in case! Come get your hands dirty, meet some wonderful people and help keep our forests clean!
 
Since 2015, volunteers have removed over 20 tons of garbage and over 150 tires from the forest. Although a large amount of garbage has been removed over the last three years, dump sites in the forest continue to be a major issue. Please join us for this year’s event!
 
Unsightly garbage is harmful to plants and animals. It can pollute water sources and promote the growth of noxious weeds. Dumping on private forest lands has resulted in many land owners closing their lands to public access. Make a difference and join us on June 23rd!
 
Please remember to report illegal dumping! It can help make a difference.

Interested in working with us?

Want to know our likes and dislikes? Want to know if you're a good match for the YCSO? You can always find information about what we're looking for in our staff and what our hiring process looks like by checking out our Join The Team page.

Word to the wise - if you think you might be interested in joining our team, two things can help you prepare for when we post openings - go ahead and get your testing done with National Testing Network (NTN) and schedule a ride along with one of our Enforcement deputies. The NTN testing is a required part of the application process; the ride along is optional and intended to help you get a better understanding of our agency and who you'd be working alongside.
