Anyone know how long the burn spots are open for?
We do not have an operational landfill....we haul to yours.Over here in Calvert, we can drop off our yard debris from 'the storm' at the landfill for free until Aug23. Usually it is $72/ton, which ends up being about $10/load on my trailer. The nice thing about paying by weight over here is I don't have to totally fill my trailer to get my $10 worth like I did in St. Mary's. Is St. Mary's doing burning instead of landfill drop-off??
We cannot haul large loads or old boats to St. Marys. All that stuff has to go to Calvert. My brother has a permit sticker on his dump truck for that.And then we haul it to the big huge Waste Management facility in Gloucester County in those MBI trucks. I will admit Sweetwater over here is much easier to deal with than St. Andrews in SMC.
