Also, thank you to all of the volunteers who have helped manage this vegetation waste disposal site over the last 15+ years. Specifically, thank you to Kathie Krushinsky, Sue Hamilton, and Joanie Raetzel for all of their volunteer contributions. Their work makes it possible for us to continue providing this free opportunity to our community.
