For those who miss the deadline of November 20, there will be two, six-yard dumpsters at the Department of Public Works (150 E. Starin Rd.) between November 23 and December 4. This will be an additional opportunity to dispose of yard waste. City of Whitewater residents only will have access during regular business hours (7 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.), Monday through Friday.
