City opens brush drop-off site for residents’ storm debris

Due to tree damage created from Friday morning’s storm, the City of Lawrence’s brush drop-off site will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday through Monday.

There will be no charge for drop off during this period at the site, 1420 E. 11th St.

All wood debris, tree limbs and brush from citizens’ private property will be accepted, but no leaves or trash will be taken. The limbs will be chipped and used as mulch throughout the city.

Private tree materials not taken to the drop-off site must be properly bundled and placed with trash for removal. It will then be taken to the landfill. Bundles for refuse pickup should not exceed 5 feet in length, 18 inches in diameter or 65 pounds per bundle.

For more information, call the Lawrence Parks and Recreation Department, 832-3450.
