LET'S TALK TRASH: COVID-19 solid waste and recycling update
With everything going on, it is still important to know that the transfer stations are keeping the normal operating hours, but taking extra precautions to ensure the safety of both residents and workers.
When going to one of the transfer stations, please remember to have all household garbage bagged.
It is also important right now to bag your recyclables when dropping them off right now. Please note that plastic gloves, masks and medical tubing cannot be recycled.
If you are registered for the organics program, you are encouraged to continue to participate. Organics are still being accepted at the south transfer station, and you can pick up more organic bags in the express lane of the transfer station.
If you feel sick, please do not visit the transfer stations. During the stay-at-home order, please limit your trips to the transfer stations and make sure to maintain social distancing from other residents and staff. To keep up to date with current information or changes at the transfer station please visit www.co.hubbard.mn.us/waste.
