Halifax Town Hall will be closed on Friday, Jan. 18, for Lee-Jackson Day and Monday, Jan. 21, in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
Town Manager Carl Espy urges town residents to be aware the town public works crew will be picking up recyclables on Friday, Jan. 25, due to the modified holiday schedule.
The regular town curbside recycling pick up will resume Wednesday, Jan. 30, as customary.
During the modified holiday schedule, town residents also 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 (#1 and #2), cardboard, cans (aluminum and metal) and mixed consumer glass (clear, green and brown).
“When recycling glass at the convenience center site, please place the glass and other accepted recyclables directly into the bin with no bags to keep the materials free of contaminants so that sorting will not be necessary,” Espy said.
