CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - Chesterfield County is opening a new site for people to bring woody debris from Hurricane Irene.

A new site opens Tuesday at Rockwood Park today from 1:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. That's located at 3401 Courthouse Road. Beginning Wednesday, the site will be open daily from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. until September 11. This free site is open to Chesterfield County residents only. No tree stumps or root balls, trash, construction or commercials debris will be accepted.

If you need to dump storm-generated debris, you can bring it to the county's two convenience centers. One is located at 3200 Warbro Road (off of Genito Road) and the other is located at 6700 Landfill Drive (off Ironbridge Road).  Both centers will be open daily, from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., through Sunday, September 11. The normal disposal fees will be waived during this time.

The county is also reminding people that open burning is prohibited until after October 1 and that burning of storm debris is illegal and a Class I misdemeanor.

The county does encourage neighbors to help each other during this challenging time, particularly those who have chainsaws and trucks. Those who are totally without resources may call 804-751-4966.
