    • Garbage or construction and demolition material disposal or drop-off
    • Recyclable material drop-off
    • Compost purchases (loading by City staff unavailable at this time)
    • Wood chips (loading by City staff unavailable at this time)
    • Electronics, appliance, or furniture disposal

Staff Welfare & Safety

  • Visitors conducting business transactions must wear a face mask; if one is not available, the City will provide one.
  • Staff will maintain a six-foot social distancing space between themselves and all customers.
  • Staff attending the entrance area will be provided with facemask and gloves and may wait inside a City vehicle to attend to customers.
  • Staff won’t be allowed to assist customers in removing yard waste or brush from the customers’ vehicles or trailers.
  • Staff operating heavy machinery to maintain areas will be expected to stay inside the equipment unless there is a need to remove something from the compost row.

This limited expansion of service will continue until all services are restored by order of the City Council.
