    Covid-19 Recycling Procedures

    • 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.
