City offering collection sites for sand and black top
The City of Duluth is requesting that residents also help pick up loose chunks of black top as they sweep up sand and grit from the winter. The City can reuse the chunks and sand for various purposes. Removing this debris will also help protect streams and trout habitat.
Residents can drop off loose chunks of black top along with sand and grit at the same location. The collections sites are marked with black silt fencing and are open to all Duluth residents to dump loose black top chunks and road sand from their sidewalks, curbs and gutters. It is not necessary to bag the sand or grit. Collection sites are at the following locations:
34th Ave East and Valley Drive
Duluth Heights Community Club
Piedmont Community Center
Woodland Community Center
