An attendant will be present during all open hours to direct you. Anyone entering the

collection site must stop at the attendant's booth and have their driver's license scanned.

This will help us to provide statistics about the type of waste and approximate volume of

waste collected. This information will help the collection centers to

better serve residents in the future.
