Due to ‘abuse,’ Kane brush drop-off is closed

August 8, 2012

The brush drop-off site at Glenwood Park in Kane has been closed, Kane Borough Streets Department Foreman Mike Beane said Tuesday.
A sign posted at the closed gate at the entrance to the brush drop-off site says the closing is due to “abuse” in not following the rules.
The brush drop-off site had been open Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Beane said.
Using their own vehicles, borough residents hauled leaves, tree branches and brush to the appropriate piles at the drop-off site at the park on Hacker Street (Route 321).
