County stepped up to help citizens dispose of debris

Kudos to Sedgwick County for stepping up to help people dispose of debris from recent storms (in sharp contrast to the “it’s not our problem” approach of the city of Wichita). The county’s tree debris site at 63rd Street South and Meridian will be open through the end of this month. So far, it has received more than 15,000 truckloads of debris. The county also is offering coupons allowing residents to dispose of up to 1,000 pounds of bulky waste at two area solid waste transfer stations. To request a coupon, which must be used by Oct. 17, call 316-660-9110 or go online to sedgwickcountyservices.org/coupon/trash.
