Abnormally high vol- umes of garbage and traflic in C01- lection Centers stretch equipment and personnel to their limits and beyond. Expect longer than normal lines at the containers. Please be patient and wait your turn. ' Occasionally containers may be full when you arrive. Plan for this and be prepared to come back when space is available. It’s a good idea to call the Center before loading your vehicle. An area in the Center will be designed for Christmas tree collection. Large amounts of various types of material will be disposed of dur— ing the Holiday season. For the convenience of all Monroe County citizens, take large bulky items and large amounts directly to the Mon- roe County landfill on Highway 83 North, three miles from Forsyth. .Plan ahead: Stock up on trash bags and allow time for recycling and garbage disposal. Recycle corru- gated cardboard boxes, newspapers, magazines, catalogs, clean plastic jugs 8r bottles, clean aluminum 81 steel (tin) cans, clean glass bottles 8r jars. Bag all garbage, including gift- wrap, Styrofoam, plastic 8r paper packing. Please do not bring trash to a Center in a 55-gallon drum, untied bags, cans without lids or loose in cardboard boxes. Secure all loads hauled in open bed trucks and trailers. Arrive in time to get unloaded before clos- ing time. Any load hauled without being properly secured is illegal and can result in a ticket and fine. Never put corrugated cardboard boxes into open top containers or trash compactors; place them in the ‘Cardboard’ container. Remove all packing materials, wrappings and other waste from corrugated card— board boxes. Cut, fold or otherwise flatten the boxes.
