LANDFILL – COVID-19 RECOMMENDATIONS:
Please follow State Requirements and Guidelines for Covid-19
-Any debris that can be picked up curbside should be placed curbside for pickup instead of personally bringing It into the landfill.
-If debris must be brought into the landfill, please be prepared to wait to dump as we will be practicing safe social distances and will be limiting the landfill to three customers at a time and limiting the number of residents at the drop off dumpsters to three at one time as well.
-Please be considerate of the Weighmaster and maintain a 6 ft. distance from the scale window.
We thank you for your cooperation.

Safety tips for you to consider:
• Practice social distancing.
• Try to avoid touching items others have touched.
• Consider wearing a mask when social distancing measures are difficult to maintain. If you do
not have a mask, staff inside can provide one to your free of charge.
• Frequently wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or use a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. This is especially
true before and after an encounter.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Do not shake hands, give high-fives, exchange elbow bumps, or touch others because close contact increases the risk of acquiring COVID-19.
