Yard Waste, Brush Drop-off Site Opens April 6th in Leavenworth »

Chelan County Public Works will re-open a drop-off brush yard on East Leavenworth Road in Leavenworth to service homeowners and businesses in the apple maggot quarantine area of western Chelan County.

The site, which opens on Friday, April 6, 2018, is located at the Chelan County day pit on East Leavenworth Road, near the intersection of Icicle Road. It will be open once a week; hours are 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Fridays. The site will be closed in November.

Cost is $10 a cubic yard, with a minimum fee of $10. Brush, tree and bush trimmings, garden waste, needles and leaves will be accepted at the new drop-off site. No rocks, dirt, sod, lumber or garbage is allowed.

Chelan County Public Works’ Solid Waste Department opened the site last year after several residents and businesses expressed an interest in having a brush drop-off service available in the apple maggot quarantine area. Brush and yard waste generated in the quarantine area should not be taken to a pest-free zone.

Residents and businesses are reminded that the Dryden Transfer Station, which is in a pest-free zone, does not accept brush and yard waste from the apple maggot quarantine area of western Chelan County, which includes Leavenworth, Plain and Lake Wenatchee. Residents living in the quarantine area also should keep tree limbs and cuttings, brush, grass and homegrown tree fruit out of their household garbage.

Businesses and residents are responsible for knowing where the quarantine boundaries are so they do not transport plant waste from a quarantine area to a pest-free area. The Washington State Department of Agriculture’s website has a searchable map to determine if a specific address is inside or outside the apple maggot quarantine area.
