They say they've had more than 2,000 people stop by in the past week dropping off more than 6,000 cubic yards of trees and grass.

There was so much dropped off the first day they decided to open multiple alternative drop sites around town.

"We actually had a line stretching from our property down to the next mile," Jeff Wattier, Solid Waste Superintendent, said. "The line was about a mile and a quarter in length and people were understandably getting impatient. So the decision was made by the Public Works department to open these alternative sites around town."

All of those sites are now closed, but people can continue to bring their debris to the transfer center on old potash highway.
