(Bel Air, MD) – The Harford County Department of Public Works has
announced that the Tollgate Yard Trim Drop-off Site located at 703 North Tollgate Road will be closing all operations on July 1, 2009 until further notice.
The closure was necessary in order to meet a final cut imposed by the Harford County Council to the FY2010 Operating Budget which removed an additional 5% of funding from nearly all county departments and agencies.
Harford County residents will still be able to drop off yard trim directly at the Harford Waste Disposal Center’s Mulch and Compost Site, which is located at 3135 Scarboro Road in Street, Maryland.
Current operating hours at the Scarboro site are Monday through Friday from 7:00am until 3:00pm, and Saturday from 8:00am until 2:00pm. Effective Saturday, July 11, 2009 the hours at the Mulch and Compost Site will change to 7:00am until 3:00pm, Monday through Saturday.
