The temporary staging area at the Carrol H. Warner Memorial Research Park, which is accessed off Gateway Drive, will stay open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Saturday. The site will then reopen from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. the following two Saturdays, May 16 and 23, closing after that, according to a county news release.

After May 23, residents are asked to take vegetative and other non-hazardous debris to the Barden Landfill off Connector Road.
