Due to the continued poor air quality, the Recycling Center will be closed today from 2.30 pm. We plan to re-open on Friday, October 13th at 8 am.
Please keep the following precautions in mind: 1. Limit outdoor activities to avoid unnecessary exposure. 2. Set air conditioning units and car vent systems to re-circulate to prevent outside air from moving inside (if this is possible). 3. Reduce exposure to smoky air by remaining indoors with windows and doors closed, if possible. 4. If you cannot keep windows and doors closed due to high temperatures, seek out cooling centers in your area. Please be safe.
