TIPS FOR DAY OF COLLECTION

  • DO NOT BAG your materials, it makes it difficult for us to assess them. Bring in closed containers in a sturdy box.
  • 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. 
  • Please STAY IN YOUR CAR. This is both for your own safety and to keep the line moving.
