Yard Waste Dump In Your Neighborhood?
The proposed yard & brush waste drop-off site for all of Carver County, located on Arboretum land, but in Victoria at the intersection of Bavaria Road & 82nd Street does NOT belong here. For a number of reasons, this site is NOT an appropriate location for this service.
Carver County Commissioners will be voting to move forward with this site on February 20th, 2018. We need as many voices as possible expressing opposition to their selection of this site!
At this point in time, Carver County has still been unable to provide realistic estimates on the expected number of vehicles that would be utilizing this site per hour by specific day of the week. (Their currently published estimates of 34 vehicles per hour at peak times vastly distort what it will be in reality as these figures are based off of outdated 2015 Environmental Center usage and they do not take into consideration many other factors)
However, the impact of expected traffic around this entire site and neighborhoods cannot be overlooked.
If this site passes, all those who live along or use Bavaria Road/82nd St/County Road 18 to commute to school & work, in their daily travels, or are pedestrians along will be gravely impacted.
Based on 2017 numbers, just imagine what 895 bags of grass clippings stacked up at this site per week will look like? As this will only be hauled out once a week.
However, all brush material will just continue to pile up, only to be chipped on site once a year.
Whatever your concern may be, if you have any opposition to this site, we need to hear from you! This petition will be presented to the Carver County Commissioners as evidence that their constituents do not want this site selected. We are stronger in numbers and we need your signature! Every signature will make a difference! Sign Below!
