At an emergency Wednesday meeting, the Rapid City Council was informed that curbside pick-up of tree and yard debris from the storm would not be available for several weeks. According to the Rapid City Journal, Public Works Director Terry Wolterstorff said that city pick-up of the debris from homes would be necessary, but the city would have to follow a process to do it.
The landfill will not accept yard waste at this time. Instead, residents will need to use a drop-off location: the Central States Fairgrounds, Fitzgerald Stadium (off Sheridan Lake Road), or the Civic Center overflow parking lot (off 5th Street).
