Story County has a drop-off site for yard waste and vegetative storm debris from the August 10th storm event. The site is for organic storm debris only (trees-no root balls, brush, and vegetation) and limited to residents of unincorporated Story County (outside all city limits). It is self-haul, drop-off only.
The site is located at 60016 160th Street (southeast of Roland), at the Southeast corner of the intersection of 600th Avenue and 160th Street (entrance to the site is from 160th Street).
The site is open Monday through Wednesday from 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm and again on Saturday from 8:00 am – 12:00 pm.
Upon entry to the site, identification or other proof of residence in unincorporated Story County must be shown, and loads will be photographed and logged. Face coverings are recommended when social distancing practices cannot be followed.
Staff is not available to help unload debris, and residents are encouraged to tie down or cover loads to prevent debris from falling out during transport. Use caution around the heavy equipment at the drop-off sites. PPE Recommended: Safety Glasses, Hi Viz Shirt, Gloves, Long pants, Closed Toed Shoes.
The dumping of non-yard waste debris or any debris outside of the set hours by the public shall be considered illegal dumping and shall be punishable by law.
