Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- The way Duluth is laid out, all storm drains lead directly into our streams and Lake Superior potentially impacting natural fish habitats.
Road sand swept from sidewalks, driveways, curbs, gutters or boulevards into city streets will wash directly into the waterways and that can harm aquatic life. The best way to dispose of road sand is to sweep it up and take it to one of eight city dump sites.
–34th Ave East and Valley Drive
–Duluth Heights Community Club
–Piedmont Community Center
–Woodland Community Center
The sites are all marked with black silt fencing and a sign.
The city adds that you should dispose of yard waste, leaves, grass clippings and brush at the WLSSD yard waste site which you can learn more about by clicking here.
