Road Weight Limit Bans are STILL in effect: Sawyer County bans come off Monday, April 19- Town of Draper bans REMAIN IN EFFECT UNTIL AS LEAST MAY 3RD: please wait to schedule your septic or LP service until the roads firm up. Even though these trucks are "exempt," they are not magically lighter in weight and still cause severe damage to our roads- please do your part and avoid having heavy truck services during the bans.
Garbage Drop Off Site Policy: When you go- please observe the new rules- one at a time, stay in your vehicle, sign in, and let the attendant assist you and check what you are throwing in the recycle dumpster. Please follow the Waste Management rules for recycling- no plastic bags allowed in the recycling- there is a video camera on the back of the trucks that captures plastic bags going into the trucks and they fine us!
