Sweep up your sand and give it back to the City.
City of Duluth wants to remind residents to not sweep the sand from their sidewalks, driveways or boulevards into city streets. The best way to dispose of it is to sweep it up and bring it to one of the eight dump sites that Untility Operations has set up around Duluth for your convenience.
City crews sweep road sand off the streets as quickly as possible in the spring, and any additional help from citizens is greatly appreciated. If it is not picked up before the spring rains, the sand washes into our streams and damages trout habitat.
The collections sites are marked with black silt fencing and are open to all Duluth residents to dump road sand from their sidewalks, curbs and gutters. Sites are located at the following locations:
34th Ave East and Valley Drive
Duluth Heights Community Club
Piedmont Community Center
Woodland Community Center
