*  Message from the Mayor  *

Residents of Grand Island:

People are asking me for locations in the city where coronavirus may be present.  On March 28, 2020, the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services determined that we have confirmed cases of community spread of coronavirus in the city.  This means that we must assume that coronavirus is everywhere.  Please take extra precautions using this assumption.   Please keep at least 6 feet of space between you and other people, wash your hands regularly, and do not touch your face. 

Mayor Roger G. Steele

Tree Grass, Leaves, and Tree Branches 

The Transfer Station offers to residential customers free disposal of grass, leaves, and tree branches. The Yard Waste Site has a separate entrance located on Monitor Road, just North of the Transfer Station building.  The Yard Waste Site will only be open during regular business hours.  Grand Island residents can enter the South gate, stop on the scale, and visit with office staff via telecom, to dispose of grass, leaves, and tree branches.

Yard waste to be disposed of must be clean of waste and debris and must be emptied from garbage bags at the time of disposal. Customers delivering yard waste must ensure that loads are properly secured so as to prevent littering along the roadways.  Free disposal of yard waste is only for homeowner and renters, not contractors for hire.
