Notice to Residents of Lester

City Tree Dump Policy


It has come to the attention of the Lester City Council that prohibited waste is being disposed of at the City Tree Dump.  Residents are to be reminded that only plant waste originating from their own property may disposed of at the City Tree Dump, including trees, limbs, brush, grass clippings, and garden waste.  


All other waste is strictly prohibited, including but not limited to metal, pallets, cardboard, construction waste, trash, and general household and business garbage.


It has also come to the attention of the City Council that non-residents of Lester are disposing of waste at the City Tree Dump.  Only residents of Lester are permitted to use the City Tree Dump.


If problems of the above nature persist, access to the City Tree Dump will be restricted to Saturdays from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM, and incoming waste will be monitored and inspected.  Lester is uncommon in having an open access policy at our City Tree Dump.  Please help keep it this way by using common sense.


Your cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated.  If you have any questions of what may be disposed of at the City Tree Dump, please contact a member of the City Council.


Sincerely,

Lester City Council
