Douglas County has opened two woody debris disposal sites for those who are clearing tree and brush storm debris. These sites will be open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Sunday, June 9, to residents and contractors helping residents. The sites are located:

  • Southeast corner of 31st Street and Haskell Avenue in Lawrence.
  • Northeast corner of N1250 Road/E1600 Road (O'Connell Road).

Only woody debris (trees and brush) will be accepted at these sites. For all other storm debris, follow these guidelines:

3:00-5:00 p.m. - Joint City, County and School District Quarterly meeting. Two or more Commissioners may be in attendance.

Douglas County is seeking proposals from contractors for the removal of disaster generated construction and demolition (C&D) debris from public lands, easements, and rights-of-way, the reduction of woody debris by grinding at one Debris Management Site, and the hauling off of the woody debris mulch generated by grinding from the same Debris Management Site. Removal of private property disaster debris moved to within reach of public rights-of-way is included.
