Landscape waste containers for DeKalb residents will be placed at Fire Station No. 2, 1154 S. Seventh St.; city garden plots near Fire Station No. 3, 950 W. Dresser Road, and the southeast corner of North Seventh and Oak streets. The material should be put in the containers loose or in landscape waste bags, not in plastic bags.
