People Continue Dropping Off Debris After Storm

Drop Off Site Dates Extended

The heavy rain and wind that swept through the Northland a few weeks ago, was followed by another storm Thursday Morning.

Many debris drop off sites were created after the first storm, and the sites continue to fill up with more fallen trees each day.

“Sometimes when we get small things that fall we can just drag it in the woods you know, but this was just way too much stuff to try and drag in the woods, this is awesome that they opened this up and did this for the community,” said Jeff Mrozik, who was dropping off some trees at a drop off site.

Because of the heavy use, 2 of the Debris drop off sites opened by St. Louis County will stay open through August 21st, 2 weeks longer than expected. The two locations are Arnold Pit in Gnesen Township, and Taft Pit in Grand Lake Township.

The city of Duluth also has a Debris Drop off site on Rice Lake Road, and the City of Rice Lake invites people to drop off Debris at their site on Martin Road.
