York City's yard waste site at Memorial Stadium will reopen this week to city residents after closing amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The site will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. Those wishing to dispose of yard waste will be required to prove their customer status or residency, using a valid license or a recent sewer bill.  according to a news release on Monday.

Violators will be prosecuted under the city's illegal dumping ordinance, with fines up to $600, the release states.

As of noon Monday, there were 2,182 cases of COVID-19 and 81 deaths linked to the disease in York County.
