Friday Feb 17 2012 3:58 PM

If you have put off cleaning up after the January snow and ice storm, time is running out to take advantage of free storm debris disposal. Pierce County's program will wrap up on Sunday, Feb 26.

More than 15,000 tons of debris has been collected since the program began on Jan 20. On its busiest collection day, the Hidden Valley Transfer Station averaged 196 vehicles every hour.
You can haul your debris to the county transfer stations listed below.

• Puyallup/South Hill/Graham AreasHidden Valley Transfer Station, 17925 Meridian Street East
Seven days a week, 8 a.m. to 5:45 p.m.

• Gig Harbor PeninsulaPurdy Transfer Station, 14515 54th Avenue NW
Seven days a week, 9 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.

• Bonney Lake/East Pierce CountyPrairie Ridge Transfer Station, Prairie Ridge Drive East at South Prairie Road East
Seven days a week, 9 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.

If you pay for curbside yard waste collection you can put smaller debris in your yard waste containers throughout the spring. Debris must fit inside the container and is limited to foliage and branches smaller than four inches in diameter. No thick branches, trunks or stumps are allowed in yard waste containers. Storm debris placed next to a container will not be collected.

Remember, it is unsafe and illegal to dump storm debris into public rights-of-way, storm water facilities or other public property. Please call the Pierce County Responds hotline at 253-798-INFO (4636) to report illegal dumping.
