Dump Off Fall Leaves at WLSSD

WLSSD Staff Say They Will Have New Drop-off Hours Next Week

DULUTH, Minn.-With winter just around the corner, leaves are falling off local trees at a rapid rate.

Western Lake Superior Sanitary District is now here to help as they are taking in all sorts of fall trash.

Whether its leaves, spoiled apples, or grass, WLSSD can turn it into fall compost.

Staff at the organization said it’s better to take it there, then burn it in the backyard.

“We really don’t want to see anyone burning these leaves because of course, you’re talking about a fire hazard in your backyard, next to the shed,” said Lori Blais, Environmental Program Coordinator.  “It’s much better purposed for compost.”

WLSSD will be taking in your fall foliage from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday through Sunday, and beginning next week, they will also be open Thursdays.
