DULUTH, Minn. -

Western Lake Superior Sanitary District's (WLSSD) Yard Waste Compost Site will expand its operating hours to 5 days a week for the remainder of October.

During the expanded hours, the site will be open Thursday-Monday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Full Compost Site services will be available.

"We expanded our hours to make disposal more convenient for all the vegetative debris fall brings - leaves, garden waste, fruit and veggies, pumpkins, and grass clippings," said WLSSD director of solid waste services, Heidi Ringhofer. "These items can be brought to the Yard Waste site for free. We also take brush at the Yard Waste Site and our Materials Recovery Center for a small feel to cover chipping costs."

Expanded hours end October 31.

Regular site hours will resume on November 1: Friday- Sunday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. closed Monday-Thursday.
