SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - The city has opened two leaf and tree branch drop-off sites that will be open through the first of December.
Landfill Superintendent Dave McElroy says the sites are at East Chambers Street, near the Street Department, and at North Lyon Boulevard west of the W.H. Lyon Fairgrounds.
McElroy says charges are $2 a load in a car, pickup, van, S-U-V or trailers. He says when you load leaves and branches in the back of a pickup or trailer, you must tarp the load so the debris does not fall out on your way to the drop-off sites.
McElroy says branch size is limited to six inches in diameter or less.
He says leaves must be removed from plastic bags since plastic doesn’t compost.
The drop-off sites are open Monday through Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.
