City Closes Remaining Branch Collection Sites
The city of Casper has closed its remaining branch collection sites.
City of Casper assistant public services director Pete Meyers says all branch collection sites have been closed and returned to their original, pre-storm states.
At one point, the city was operating 12 collection sites as city crews scrambled to clear thousands of downed branches from roads, sidewalks, driveways and yards following October’s record-setting Winter Storm Atlas.
The storm dumped 15 inches of snow on portions of Casper and Natrona County.
Meyers says remaining branches should be brought to the Casper Regional Landfill. He also says operating hours at the landfill will be extended to accommodate leaf and branch drop-off.
Free wood chips are still available, however. Meyers says wood chips can be collected at Bryan Stock Trail, Mike Sedar Park and the Natrona County Agricultural Resource and Learning Center.
