Notice Concerning Site Improvements at Springfield Road Public Use Area

In order to improve the safety for our customers and to meet the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulatory requirements, we have raised the height of our existing barrier in the residential waste drop-off area to 42 inches.  Please note the OSHA is a division of the United States Department of Labor and this is a federal requirement.  In the event you need disposal assistance, please notify the scale attendant or the staff member assigned to the drop-off area.SpringfieldRailing

Due to high mulch demands, please contact the Springfield Road Public Use Area (747-1865) or Charles City Road Public Use Area (222-7739) to check mulch availability prior to coming to the site.
