WICHITA, Kansas – Many residents throughout Sedgwick County are still cleaning up large amounts of tree and brush debris from the storm last month.

The county has set up a tree debris burn site at 63rd Street South and Meridian near the big ditch.

The county has extended the site’s weekend hours which will now be 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. each Saturday and Sunday.

The site will continue to be available 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. each weekday for Sedgwick County residents, cities, townships, and businesses free of charge.

The burn site will remain available throughout the month of July.

The burn site is intended for tree and brush debris only.

Fences, structure remains, bulky waste and all other trash will not be accepted.

Citizens may take all other trash to one of two transfer stations in Sedgwick County:

Waste Connections on the northwest corner of 37th Street North and West Street and Waste Disposal, LLC on the northeast corner of 55th Street South and Hoover.
