Sandbag pickup tentatively to start July 22

Cottonwood County Emergency Management and the City of Windom have announced tentative plans to begin pickup for sandbags used during recent flooding.

Curbside sandbag pickup is expected to begin the week of July 22 in Windom, provided there is no uptick in water levels of the Des Moines River.

Property owners are asked to neatly place the sandbags at the curb of their property for pickup.

Additionally, property owners are reminded to not empty the sandbags or repurpose the bags. Once a sandbag has been used and contacts flood water, the bag and the sand are both considered contaminated.
