Garbage Drop Off Site Policy: When you go- please observe the new rules- one at a time, stay in your vehicle, sign in, and let the attendant assist you and check what you are throwing in the recycle dumpster. Please follow the Waste Management rules for recycling- no plastic bags allowed in the recycling- there is a video camera on the back of the trucks that captures plastic bags going into the trucks and they fine us!
