The Department of Public Works is asking residents to help DPW employees keep Holly Hill Transfer Station operating safely.
Holly Hill is open, and requests compliance with social distancing when residents visit the site. There are new traffic patterns in place. Passenger vehicles will be directed through the recycling area for both trash and recycling drop off. All commercial vehicles, pickup trucks, vehicles pulling trailers, utility vans, and any other cargo type vehicle will be directed to go over the scale.
There may be delays as staff manages traffic through the site, particularly on Saturdays. Please be patient and respectful of everyone’s space.
No new permits are being issued at this time. If residents do not have a permit, they must show valid driver’s license with a local address through the car window.
The Book Swap shed and Goodwill are closed and donations are not being accepted at this time. Please do not leave donations at either of these locations.
Hours of operation continue to be Monday through Friday 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and Saturday 7:a.m. to noon -- Please make every effort to limit your trips and come during the week.
