Most Muni Wood Lots Shutting Down, South Staying Open
The Municipality of Anchorage wood lots will begin shutting down this coming weekend.
The Eagle River wood lot, co-located with the Anchorage Regional Landfill (located just north of the Hiland Road, Glenn Highway exit) will close for the season at 5:00 PM on Saturday, August 30th.
The Girdwood wood lot will close on the same day, at 6:00 PM. Both wood lots may re-open in the event of fall windstorm damage and the need for subsequent debris disposal.
The south Anchorage wood lot, located at 100th and C Street, will remain open until further notice, seven days a week (from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM each day).
Please be sure to cover your load and make use of this extended opportunity to prepare for the wildfire season next spring by pruning or removing trees close to your home and disposing of the limbs and flammable debris.
Additional announcements will be made prior to the final closing date for the south Anchorage wood lot.
