Recycling/sanitation site guidelines issuedMarch 18, 2020
From Local Sources
Until further notice, all transactions at the county’s recycling/sanitation sites must be done at each site’s office window.
The county is dispensing with sign-ins that had occurred inside the site offices and items like batteries and magazines that had been handled by attendants will not be accepted until further notice, according to County Highway Supervisor Steve Berg.
The county’s recycling/sanitation sites are manned by older adults who are especially at risk to COVID-19 and the current changes are to better protect employees, Berg said.
Berg has posted signs at the sites noting the passage Monday by the Dubois County Commissioners of a resolution concerning public access to county facilities. It asks anyone experiencing flu-like symptoms or who has had exposure to anyone who has or may have COVID-19 to not come to property owned and maintained by Dubois County.
Berg says the operation of the collection sites is an essential function of county business and every effort will be made to ensure that all sites will function on their normal business routine, just without people coming into the office.
Those accessing the sites should strive to maintain social distancing, keeping at least 6 feet apart per Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendation.
Meanwhile, the District Process Center on County Road 350W that had accepted electronics, small appliances and other bulky items has temporarily halted public hours of operation as that site was deemed to not be an essential service at this time. Anyone with questions can call the Dubois County Solid Waste District at 812-482-7865.
