Halifax Town Hall will be closed on Monday, Sept. 2, in observance of Labor Day.
Carl Espy, Halifax town manager, reminds residents the town will be picking up recyclables including glass (separated) on Friday, Sept. 6, due to the modified holiday schedule.
The regular town curbside recycling pick up will resume Wednesday, Sept. 11, as customary.
During the modified holiday schedule, town residents may take their properly prepared recyclable materials to the large yellow containers provided at the Blue Ridge Regional Jail lower parking lot which now accepts co-mingled newspaper (including mixed paper), plastic (#1 and #2), cardboard and cans (aluminum and metal) - glass is currently not accepted at these containers, Espy said.
“When recycling at the convenience center site, please place items directly into the bin with no bags to keep it free of contaminants so that sorting will not be necessary. Glass is only accepted with curbside recycling pick-up service on the first and last Wednesday of each month unless revised due to holiday,” Espy said.
The Halifax Solid Waste Department will conduct its solid waste pick-up the week of Labor Day on a modified schedule:
• Tuesday, Sept. 3: Residents normally served on this day will have solid waste picked up.
• Wednesday, Sept. 4: Residents normally served on Monday will have solid waste picked up.
• Thursday, Sept. 5: residents normally served on this day will have solid waste picked up.
• Friday, Sept. 6: The Halifax Solid Waste Department will conduct curbside recycling on this day, including glass and will resume regular weekly curbside recycling on Wednesday, Sept. 11.
