The Unity Area Regional Recycling Center will continue to be closed to the public through this COVID-19 State of Emergency. If you could pass along the information of our continued closure to your residents that would be great.
From the Executive Order from our Governor dated March 26, 2020 , “municipal solid wastes may be a pathway for infectious disease and facilities that utilize employees to physically sort recyclable materials have a higher risk of exposing their employees to COVID-19 on the materials they handle”.
We do want you to know that we are still accepting deliveries from Town curbside pick-up, transfer stations and businesses.
We have taken steps to reduce exposure by not processing any deliveries for a minimum of 24 hours. If we were open to the public this separation would be nearly impossible, and the exposure rate would be greatly increased.
