Q – I want to get rid of my brush, sticks, leaves and such, but I’m concerned about environmental issues, nuisance smoke, and safety. Are there better and safer ways to dispose of it?

A – Boxx Sanitation is currently operating a brush disposal site on Jeffers Rd. You may contact them for more information and pricing. The DNR also operates an excellent website with alternatives to burning. You may visit the webpage at http://dnr.wi.gov/topic/OpenBurning/
