Because of issues related to COVID-19, residents should be aware that beginning March 31 recycling will not be taken to the recycling center. It will be taken to the landfill.
This change is being made for two reasons:
1. Refuse for recycling has to be handled by employees. By eliminating this it lowers the chance for the spread of COVID-19.
2. Because people are home more right now there has been an increase in the amount of refuse, so the recycling trucks are being used to pick up regular trash.
In addition, there will be no brush or bagged leaves picked up, or bulk pickup for the near future.
Residents are urged to continue their regular schedule of trash and recycling at this time for continuity's sake. Just be aware that recycling is being treated as regular trash for now.
