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).
According to Beane, some residents have been consistently ignoring the rules and dumping brush inside the gate when the site is closed. Black plastic bags full of grass and twigs still lie where they were dumped inside the closed gate. Another pile of brush also rests where it was dumped inside the gate.
