City of Austin opens branch site at fairgroundsPublished 11:40am Tuesday, May 7, 2013
The city of Austin has opened a branch collection site at the Mower County Fairgrounds for residents to drop off trees and branches downed by last week’s snowstorm.
The fairgrounds site will be open from dawn to dusk Tuesday, May 7, though Sunday, May 12. Residents should enter the fairgrounds from the Fourth Avenue Southwest entrance and will exit onto 12th Street Southwest. City officials say only trees and branches will be accepted, not mulch or lawn clippings.
