COVID-19 Update from the Centre Region Emergency Management Program, April 1, 2020

Centre Region Specific News:
  • The following messaging was sent to residents about the drop off locations: Residents have the option of storing their recycling on their property until curbside collection resumes or placing it in their trash in a trash grade bag. We are not encouraging residents to leave their homes to drop off recycling. Please be advised that if you do choose to utilize the drop off locations, you should only do so in accordance with the Governor's order (i.e. don't make a separate trip just to recycle; instead combine it with a trip to the grocery store). Residents are reminded to practice social distancing at all locations.
