Friendly Reminder-Brush Dump Items

During the fall, an increased amount of activity is seen at the brush dump. Please remember that only brush, leaves and yard waste are acceptable items. If we continue to see plastic, cardboard and other unacceptable items the current system of leaving the brush dump open and available 24/7 may have to change. Reduced hours and locked at certain times, or by key check out only are some of the solutions should the problems with unwanted items continues. Please do your part to keep the brush dump available at all times!
