The Madison County Solid Waste Transfer Station will accept leaf/limb debris (no construction debris) from the recent snowstorm free of charge for a period of six weeks (through April 24).
Leaf and limb debris includes trees, limbs/branches, leaves and stumps.
Leaf and limb debris may be brought to the station during regular operating hours (Wednesday – Saturday, from 7 a.m. – 5 p.m.) and during this six-week period only, leaf and limb debris will also be accepted on Monday and Tuesdays from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at no charge. No solid waste will be accepted on Monday and Tuesday.
“We want the citizens to know that we are here to help but that there are special instructions they must follow – such as keeping storm debris separated,” Transfer station director Sandra Webb said. “Any building or construction debris must go to a C and D Landfill.”
Leaf and limb rules for the transfer station include: no loads will be accepted after 5:30 p.m.; no household garbage or other debris is to be dumped with leaf and limb debris; the load must be secured; patrons must weigh in and out of the dumping area; this service is available to Madison County citizens only; debris must be unloaded yourself and must contain only trees, stumps, leaves, branches, etc. No construction debris.
