Rapid City looking at options for wood chips


All these branches are getting ground up, and city leaders are trying to figure out what to do with giant piles of wood chips.

Grinders are at the three debris drop off sites located throughout Rapid City. Pickup truck after pickup truck continues to roll into the sites, leaving more and more broken tree limbs. The city is accepting proposals from businesses that would like to use the wood chips. But now the general public will have a chance to pick up some.

On Thursday anyone can load up from a couple of piles in the parking lot by the Jamie Johnson Baseball Field on 32nd Street in west Rapid City.

"If we see that people really want this, then we'll look at other locations and adding more to here," said the city's recycling educator Beth-Anne Ferley.

City officials also want to remind people to not burn their yard waste, and to use the drop off sites or curb side pickup instead.
