Drop-Off Site Stays Busy Through Second Day

Duluth still working to clean up brush and debris after storms.

Almost a week later and Duluth residents are still cleaning up debris and downed trees from severe storms. The city is trying to help by creating a drop off site on Rice Lake road.

St. Louis county is opening up two addition sites starting Wednesday.

Duluth citizens are working tirelessly to clean not only their property but others who were affected by the storms.

“We cleaned our house and helped with our neighbors, now we’re doing our churches property… It’s fun to help other people and in the meantime what else can we do,” said Geri Peterson, who is still without power.

The city is asking people to not retrieve debris and brush for personal use. It’s needed to assess the damage and determine eligibility for disaster relief funding.

After the debris is tracked it will be chipped and used as fuel for the Minnesota Power Hibbard Plant.
