Western Lake Superior Sanitary District will end free disposal of vegetative debris related to the April 11-12 storm on Sunday, May 4. Limbs, brush and trees will be accepted at no charge for disposal at the Yard Waste Compost Site at 27th Avenue West and Courtland Street and at the Materials Recovery Center at Rice Lake and Ridgeview Roads.

The Yard Waste Compost site is open with extended hours daily: Saturdays 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday through Friday 12 Noon to 5 p.m. The extended hours will continue through early June. The WLSSD Materials Recovery Center is open Fridays, Saturdays, Mondays and Tuesdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from 12 Noon to 5 p.m. Hours are available at http://www.wlssd.com/hourslocations.php .

Area residents should contact the WLSSD Hotline at 722-0761 or visit www.wlssd.com with questions about proper disposal.
