TIPS FOR DAY OF COLLECTION

  • DO NOT BAG your materials, it makes it difficult for us to assess them.
  • BRING A BOOK:  Lines can sometimes be long, especially in the first hour of a collection. We strive to keep wait times under a half hour, but it is not always possible.
  • Walk-ins (as opposed to drive-ins) are not allowed, due to safety issues.
