With all the rain we’ve been getting it’s easy to see what storm drains are plugged.  The City of Duluth knows that there is a cleaning process ahead, but with your help a lot of additional work can be avoided and lots of debris can be diverted from ending up in our streams and Lake Superior.  Here is a list of road sand collection sites you can use.

 

Catch basins from our storm drains lead directly to our streams and Lake Superior, not to the waste water treatment plant.  You are asked to refrain from dumping anything into them and to contact the City of Duluth at 730-4130 during business hours or 730-4100 on evenings and weekends to report any illegal discharge or dumping.

Street sweepers collect road sand from the streets as quickly as possible in the spring, but any additional help from citizens is greatly appreciated. The City of Duluth wants to reminds you that our storm drains lead directly to our streams and Lake Superior and impact natural fish habitats. In fact, it can damage trout habitat.  Any road sand that is swept from sidewalks, driveways or boulevards into city streets washes directly into our waterways. The best way to dispose of road sand is to sweep it up and bring it to one of the eight dump sites that the City has set up around Duluth.

The collection sites are marked with black silt fencing and a sign and are open to all Duluth residents to drop off road sand from their sidewalks, curbs, and gutters.

Sites are located at the following locations:

  • 34the Ave East and Valley Drive
  • Chester Bowl
  • Duluth Heights Community Club
  • Lester Park
  • Piedmont Community Center
  • Stowe School
  • Wheeler Field
  • Woodland Community Center

For the disposal of yard waste, leaves, grass clippings, and brush, please visit the WLSSD yard waste site.
