Atlantic’s Yard Waste Site Hours changed – Mayor says time to spruce up your property


March 21st, 2012 by Ric Hanson

The recent warm weather and official beginning of Spring have property owners in Atlantic chomping at the bit to spruce up their land by removing tree branches and other yard debris. That point was driven home during Wednesday night’s City Council meeting, by Mayor Dave Jones. Jones says property owners need to get back in the habit of trimming their trees and mowing their lawns.

The City is making it easier to get rid of lawn clippings and and other such debris, by opening the Yard Waste Site earlier this year. During the Winter, the site was only open on Saturdays, but the days and hours were officially changed on Monday, which means property owners or tenants have more hours to take advantage of the Yard Waste disposal site.

Effective immediately, the days and hours are as follows:
Tuesday-12:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m.
Thursday-12:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m.
Saturday-9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Sunday-1:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m.

The City of Atlantic reminds citizens that only trees, branches, grass, garden waste, and leaves are accepted at the Yard Waste site.
