The following information is current as of 2:30 p.m.
At this time, based on initial assessment reports, the St. Mary's Department of Public Works and Transportation has established two locations that will accept yard waste free of charge. Yard waste includes logs, limbs, stumps, brush, leaves. All other solid waste must go to the landfill and convenience centers.
The two sites are located as follows:
* The Kessler Development Company sight, adjacent to Kessler Body and Equipment Company on Three Notch Road in Dameron;
* and the Knott's site on Piney Point Road, MD Route 249, ½ mile south of Happyland Road in Valley Lee.
Look for the "Yard Debris Burn Site" signs located at each entrance. Both sites will be open from 2:30 PM to 8:00 PM beginning Saturday, September 2, 2006. Both sites will be open from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM seven days a week until further notice.
Although yard waste is being accepted at St. Andrews Landfill at this time, please use the above locations to the fullest extent possible.
