The City Of Twin Falls Opens Wood Waste Collection Site For Wood Debris From Storm
Twin Falls, Idaho (KMVT-TV) - The City of Twin Falls will open the Wood Waste Collection Site at 4 p.m. Oct. 16th and keep it open through the 17th to allow citizens to dispose of branches and other wood debris fallen during the storm on Tuesday.
The facility, located at 987 Rose Street, is generally only open Saturdays from 12 to 5 p.m. until Oct. 27. However, the City also opens the site when there is a community-wide need to dispose of branches, trees and similar debris.
Citizens can dispose of any clean wood waste free of charge. Acceptable materials include:
unpainted lumber, pallets, tree limbs up to 32 inches in diameter, leaves, shrubs and wood
shingles. Items that are not acceptable include: wood treated with creosote, painted wood,
stumps with significant earth matter, logs or limbs over 32 inches in diameter and waste
from commercial activities.
The purpose of the wood waste recycling facility is to reduce the amount of landfill material
by converting yard and wood wastes into material suitable for alternative uses. The
chipped wood waste will be available for anyone on a first come, first serve basis.
Only City of Twin Falls residential households are eligible to participate in this no-cost program.
