City of Sheldon Asks Residents to Stop Abuse of Leaf Dump and Tree Dump
Date posted - September 7, 2012
Continued abuse of Sheldon’s leaf dump and tree dump could lead to closing, or limited hours. At the present time both dumps are open at all times, but there are restrictions as to what can be deposited there. Public Works Director Todd Uhl told the City Council Wednesday that people are leaving garbage, pallets, bags, boxes, and even furniture at the sites, even though signs at the entrances are clear about what may or may not be dumped there.
He pointed out that the city has no obligation to provide these dump sites, but is doing it as a convenience to residents. Abuse of the sites could result in their closing by the city or the DNR.
Uhl also asked that whoever has been starting fires at the tree dump, should please stop doing so. The City has an agreement with a firm who runs the trees through a chipper. They are then sold to firms such as ethanol plants who use them as fuel.
