Lions seek Heights site for newspaper trailer

Hood River Lions is looking for a new Heights location to place its trailer for collecting donated newsprint for recycling.

For about four months the Heights trailer has been located near the corner of 12th and Belmont streets. That site has become unavailable due to changing circumstances, according to member Scott Johnson.

“The new location has to have the ability to fit a tractor to move in and pick up the trailer. We’d like it to be viewable from the street and to have it as far out as the rental center (on Tucker Road) in Hood River,” Johnson said.

The Lions generate a few thousand dollars each year to help fund their activities such as the Boy Scouts program.
