Notice Concerning City of Wabasha Brush Dump Site

This is a reminder to the public that the Wabasha brush dump located at: 2206 Hiawatha Drive East, is for CITY OF WABASHA RESIDENTS ONLY!  Wabasha city limits end near the city sewer plant.  For those who live on the Sand Prairie, yes, your driver’s license may read Wabasha as the nearest city, but that does not mean you live in Wabasha City Limits.  We have had an increased amount of brush coming from the Sand Prairie.  If you are caught on camera, you will have to deal with the consequences.  Greenfield Township has informed us that they share the brush dump in Kellogg, MN.   If you live on the Sand Prairie outside of Wabasha, please contact Greenfield Township for more information.
