General Considerations when using our sites:

  • We have been experiencing a high volume of customers with the break in the weather. Expect to wait when you visit. We must allow for social distancing for all people using the facility.
  • Please do not use our facilities if you are not feeling well and wear a mask or other face covering if you have one.
  • Organize your materials as you load them so that you can tell the attendant exactly what you have really quickly at the window.
  • Bring smaller loads to make your visit as quick a possible.
  • Maintain a minimum of six feet of space between and you and others while at our facilities.
  • Site attendants will not be handling materials during the COVID-19 outbreak so be prepared to unload all of your items when you arrive.
  • Be patient and look to our site attendant for direction. We're all in this together.
