[ARCHIVED] Wood Grindings from Derecho

Wood grindings from derecho storm

It has come to our attention social media posts are circulating that Linn County Conservation is offering wood chips for those who want them by calling the department. We want to clarify that this is NOT the case. 

Linn County is working with several groups and organizations, including the Iowa DNR, to ensure all appropriate regulations on disposal options of wood chunks ground from tree and brush debris from the derecho in unincorporated Linn County are followed. While grindings may become available for large areas in substantial amounts, this organic waste is not suitable for mulch or landscaping – see photo for the grindings below.
We expect to have more information in coming days and will post an update at that time. 
Phone and internet service is still intermittent. Thank you for your patience as the county continues to work with our telephone provider.
