Transfer Station Protocols
(as of March 18, 2020)

Because of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) we're having to implement the following protocols at the Wentworth Transfer Station:

  1. The swap area will be closed. Everything is going intso the compactor or C&D dumpster.
  2. No recycling items will be collected from residents’ cars. In our case it's only aluminum cans. Hang on to them until a later date.
  3. Tissues are NOT recycling.
  4. Trash bags are to be tied off or securely closed. No errant tissues, garbage or otherwise contaminated waste littering the ground that needs to be picked up.
  5. If you are sick, stay home. Know the difference between allergies and sick.
  6. Wear gloves if you have them.
  7. Remember to wash your hands often with warm water!!

Thank you for your cooperation,
Randy Ruger and Jim Folsom
