5/28/2019 - Storm Debris Drop-off Locations
A drop-off location for storm debris (limbs, brush, logs and stumps) has been established at the East Crawford Recreation Area, 1801 Markley Road. The site will remain open through Friday, May 31 at 5 p.m. Drop-offs by commercial operators are not permitted.

In an effort to assist City staff with the community storm response, residents are strongly encouraged to take their storm debris (free of charge) directly to the Salina Municipal Solid Waste Landfill, 4292 S. Burma Road, while open. Materials that are not accepted include: sod, grass, dirt, lumber, rock, animal waste, trash, food waste, and decorative grasses. Customers who bring loads mixed with unacceptable material will be charged the minimum tipping fee of $10 per vehicle for loads up to 560 pounds. Loads of 560 pounds or above will be charged $35.50 per ton. Commercial operators can dispose of tree waste at the landfill for one half of the normal tipping fee. For the Memorial Day holiday, the landfill will close at 2 p.m. Regular operating hours are Monday-Friday, 7 a.m.-4:30 p.m. and Saturday, 8 a.m.-2 p.m.

Smaller limbs and branches that will not fit in yard waste carts can be tied into bundles less than five feet long and no greater than one foot in diameter and placed beside carts. The bundles must be small enough for a single sanitation work to lift. Larger logs will require a special pickup, which can be scheduled by calling (785) 309-5750.
