Covid 19 Recycling Sites Update


Bookmark and Share

Thank you for being patient and understanding with us while we have been closed under the executive order. While we have been closed, we have been working on a new procedure for the safety of our guests and staff. Our recycling sites open starting the week of June 1 and will be open our regular hours. Your next visit to one of our four recycling sites may look a little different:

  • First, we ask that all guests wear a mask. A scarf or bandana can be used as a mask if needed. If you do not have a mask, we will have to ask you to leave and return at a later time with a mask in order to recycle.
  • You will be required to check in with a site attendant when arriving to the site, please stay in your car and check in with your window cracked and let the site attendant know the reason for your visit.
  • We will have a table with gloves and sanitizer available for residents to use while using the recycling bins.
  • We cannot accept trailer loads of hazardous waste or recycling at this time. Please space out and only allow two visitors at a time to use the recycling bins.
  • If you are bringing any hazardous waste, please pop your trunk and remain in your car so the site attendant can sort your hazardous waste material.
  • If you are bringing a large TV to unload, you will need to wear a mask and gloves.
  • If the sites seem busy we ask that you please come back at a later time. If the site is too full, you may be turned away. We understand that many residents have accumulated a large amount of recycling during this time and ask that you please be patient with us as we move into this new process. This has been a challenging and stressful time for everyone.
