South Point is Replacing Badger Rd as the West Side Drop-off Site

When South Point opens, the location will replace Badger Rd. This means South Point will accept trash, recycling, yard waste, brush, electronics, Styrofoam, and the other material that had been dropped off at the Badger Rd. location.
