Jefferson City Council to discuss reopening yard waste drop-off site


The Jefferson City Council will discuss the possibility of reopening its temporary yard waste drop-off location at its meeting on Monday, according to a Thursday press release from the city.

This comes as burning season ends on Friday at sunset and the city last week opted to end its yard waste services after it rejected bids from multiple companies, citing the cost as the reason. A temporary drop-off site for yard waste on 708 Ellis Boulevard was closed in January. There were 2,161 loads of yard waste dropped off at the site from November through January, according to data from the city. 

The Public Safety Committee opted not to extend burning season on Thursday.  Residents who decide to burn could face a citation and fines, according to the release.

If the council approves the ordinance on Monday, the temporary drop-off site on Ellis Boulevard would reopen, “not later than April 1,” the release states.
