    >>Thought I saw certain length rules on tree parts

    We haven’t seen any restrictions on debris size….we did confirm that you can put the entire tree out for curbside pick up

    Thought I saw certain length rules on tree parts…something like four feet, but I can’t find the article. Anyone know?

    I guess the County will have to staff these locations in order for some folks to abide by the requirements of “vegetation debris only”. When I drove by the Athletic Complex on 9 mile Road, some morons had already began dumping fence panels into the pile of debris. This action is the same reason the recycling dumpsters were removed from the location.

    I’d appreciate seeing a story on the city dump site that become at the old Navy OLF 8. I’m still working to try and understand what the plan is there; hopefully no to burn the massive pile growing by the hour there.
