(Atlantic) The Atlantic Yard Waste site has been opened up today and tomorrow for residents to dispose of down trees caused by this (Monday) morning’s storm. Atlantic Assistant City Administrator John Lund says the site is open today and from noon to 8:00 p.m. tomorrow. Lund says residents are responsible for getting rid of their own debris, but if you have a dead tree, well then that’s’ a different story.
“Any branches that are lost are the responsibility of the property owner,” stated Lund. “If you have a dead tree on your hands and you are losing limbs from it, definitely give us a call at city hall and the city will remove dead trees if we can.”
High winds knocked down five-inch diameter tree branches and the city of Atlantic lost power for just over an hour this morning.
