The hours of operation will remain the same: Wednesdays, noon to 4 p.m. and Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The following items are not allowed in the garbage bins: asphalt shingles, cement, chemical containers, dead animals, electronics (recyclable at SARCAN), grain, hazardous waste, house demolition, liquid domestic sewage, new house construction garbage, petroleum by-products, propane tanks, railway ties, recyclable materials, refrigeration units, tires, and wire of any description.
