Westport Transfer Station COVID-19 Non-Contact Protocol
Public Works Director Peter Ratkiewich announced today that in order to facilitate social distancing at the Transfer Station, residents may not bring Bulky Waste items that require uploading assistance to the Transfer Station.
While the Transfer Station remains open, Transfer Station personnel have been instructed to refrain from coming into contact with either individuals or refuse brought to the station by residents. As a result, they will not be assisting residents with the removal or disposal of solid waste from vehicles. Residents should not bring bulky waste items that require uploading assistance and should keep these items at home until this protocol is lifted.
Residents bringing smaller waste items to the Transfer Station must deposit their solid waste directly into the hopper, and discharge recycling directly in to the single stream bins. Plastic bags are not allowed in the single stream recycling.
Residents are also reminded not to congregate at the Transfer Station and to exit the facility once they have disposed of their solid waste.
These protocols will be in effect until March 31, 2020 or as otherwise extended by the Administration. During this time, all fees and collection of refuse tickets will be waived.
The cooperation and patience of the public is requested.
