Halifax Town Manager Carl Espy alerts all town of Halifax customers of holiday closings and changes in the trash collection schedule during the Christmas and New Year’s holidays.

Halifax Town Hall will be closed all day Monday and Tuesday in observance of the Christmas holiday and again on Monday, Dec. 31, and Tuesday, Jan. 1, for New Year’s. 

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 (#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. This will keep the materials free of contaminants, so that sorting will not be necessary,” Espy said.

 Normal curbside recycling will resume on Wednesday, Jan. 9.
