Storm debris collection sites in Loretto and Raywick will be closing Tuesday, July 7, according to Marion County Judge/Executive John G. Mattingly.

Mattingly wrote that that sites were only allowed to remain open for six month under the permitting process under the EPA's Division of Water and Air Quality. By closing the site, they can be cleared in the next three to four weeks, Mattingly wrote. He added that it will take about that long to grind and haul the collected debris.

Mattingly also encouraged county residents to take advantage of the rare, cool weather in July and the long holiday weekend to take remaining storm debris to the collection sites before they close Tuesday.   Cox Interior will start the process of removing the debris from the Raywick Site next  week, Mattingly said. He estimated  it would take three  weeks  to clear  the Raywick  site, then Cox Interior will  move  to  the  Loretto  site, which he estimated would take a week to clean up.
