Town of Halifax
Halifax Town Hall will be closed on Monday, Oct. 12 in observance of Columbus Day, according to Halifax town manager Carl Espy.
Due to the holiday, the town’s solid waste department will be operating on a modified schedule with recyclables picked up on Friday, Oct. 16.
The regular town curbside-recycling pick up will resume Wednesday, Oct. 21, as customary.
During the modified holiday schedule, town residents may take their properly prepared recyclable materials to the large bins provided at the Blue Ridge Regional Jail lower parking lot which now accepts co-mingled newspaper, including mixed paper, plastic, cardboard, aluminum and metal cans.
When recycling at the Convenience Center site, town residents are asked to place recyclables directly into the bin with no bags
“This will keep them free of contaminants so that sorting will not be necessary,” said Espy.
Currently, no glass is permitted.
