Columbus Mayor Skip Henderson has extended the “Moratorium on Tree for Fee Services and Waiver of Tipping Fees at Granite Bluff Landfill” indefinitely for the Northern area of Columbus to aid in clean up and recovery following the March 3 storms.
According to a release by the Columbus Consolidated Government, the Northern section of the city received more severe damage than other parts.
“We anticipate it will take weeks if not months to get the northern area of the city back to normal. Therefore, I am extending the Moratorium on Tree for Fee Services and Waiver of Tipping Fees at Granite Bluff Landfill, until further notice, for the northern area of Columbus,” said Henderson.
Originally, the Moratorium was set to continue citywide through April 4. Now, it will continue for the Northern section where “massive cleanup” is ongoing.
The notice from CCG also noted that “Columbus residents living on private roads and those who wish to dispose of their own trees and yard debris can transport it to Granite Bluff Landfill on River Road but will need to contact 311 to receive a certificate of approval to have the tree for fee and/or tipping fee waived at the landfill.”
