When will Barnes Nursey collect yard waste in Sandusky?
Sandusky officials didn't organize a waste drop-off collection at Barnes Nursery this year.
City manager Nicole Ard provided the following answer:
In the past, residents dropped off yard waste at Barnes compost facility near Huron and the city paid for it.
As in the past, residents who are not already signed up for curbside yard waste collection and are interested in service can for fee sign up for curbside yard waste collection through the private firm contract recently approved by city commission. The collection runs spring through fall. Payment can be made in lump sum or in installments. Residents can also pay to drop off their yard waste at Barnes or elsewhere. For example, the Barnes' website has Barnes' rates listed.
Sandusky officials scheduled a tire drop off Saturday at Ohio Tire Terminal at 2620 W. Monroe St. Funds from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Scrap Tire Grant and the Erie County Solid Waste District help support the tire drop off. Residents must bring proof of residency to drop off a tire.
