JAMESTOWN – Jamestown’s Yard Waste Collection Site will open this week amid requests from residents.
City of Jamestown officials say the site will be manned by City Department of Public Works employees and be open Monday through Fridays 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. from May 4 to May 15.
Residents are asked to visit on their garbage pickup day to prevent overcrowding.
“As a reminder, the yard waste site is available to City residents and BPU residential Solid Waste customers only,” explained officials. “No contractors or out-of-city residents (that are not BPU Solid Waste customers) will be allowed to enter the site.”
The site collects discard leaves, grass clippings, mulch, plants/shrubs/bushes, tree parts and brush up to eight inches in diameter. Metal, sod, concrete, rocks, dirt, lumber, wood, tires, drywall and other construction materials are not accepted.
The site is located at 1001 Monroe Street at the dead end of Monroe Street, off Eighth Street.
