COVID-19 Considerations

Please note that with the onset of cold & flu season amidst a pandemic, facilities may close or adapt operations without notice. We ask for your understanding while we do our best to meet your needs. We will post notifications as broadly as possible when this happens. Call the office Mon - Sat., 888-7317 for information.


 When using our sites:

  • Your understanding is appreciated as we learn to adapt to the ever-changing COVID conditions together.
  • Expect to wait when you visit. We must allow for social distancing for all people using the facility so please be kind and patient during your visit.
  • Please do not use our facilities if you are not feeling well and wear a mask or other face covering while on site.
  • Organize your materials as you load them so that you can tell the attendant exactly what you have really quickly at the window.
  • 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.
