Waterloo scheduled to vote on new yard waste site

Posted: Updated:

Tonight, the Waterloo City Council is set to vote on what people should do with their yard waste.

Where will people be able to go to dump everything from leaves, to branches, too brush? 

That's a big question on many peoples' minds right now. 

We recently found out the popular yard waste site along Easton Avenue will close in a few weeks on September 17th. 

It's because the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says there's a chance the site could contaminate the Cedar River.

Waterloo is now looking for a new yard waste site.

Tonight they will vote on whether or not they want to build a new site along the 2700 block of Independence Avenue.

In the past, Public Works said building a new site could cost more than $1.8 million dollars. 

The city says people can also use the Black Hawk County Landfill to dump yard waste, but it's not free and it closes much earlier than the city's current yard waste site.
