Temporary Changes due to COVID-19
Public-use areas and drop-off recycling centers are open daily from 10AM to 6PM and are only accepting household garbage and recycling. Due to State Orders, beginning Friday, April 3, 2020, only 10 vehicles will be allowed into both public use areas at one time. Please be patient and expect delays as we continue to adjust our services to deal with this pandemic.
