As North Kingstown residents clean their yards after Irene, many now wonder what to do with the oodles leaves, branches and other debris left behind from Sunday's storm.
Bring any brush from the storm to North Kingstown's transfer station on Devils Foot Road or the landfill on Hamilton Allenton for free this week; all you need is proof of residency.
The transfer station will be open every day from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. this week until Saturday. Curbside pickup of brush is not available. For employees at the transfer station, the volume of residents flocking in, towing debris, is immense.
"I got here at 7:30 this morning to open and there was already a line of people," said transfer station employee Stephanie Travers.
It's been non-stop at the station, Travers adds. By Tuesday afternoon, the station had seen "about $3,000 in brush" dropped off.
Travers adds that things are often busiest when the station first opens, suggesting residents try to come later in the morning. She anticipates Saturday will be the busiest day yet.
