  • Staff will not be assisting with unloading efforts.
  • There will be no porta-potties provided during this event.
  • No salvaging of any kind.
  • During the document shredding, shredding boxes will have to be taken back by the resident, but can be dumped across the street at the Cleanup Days site.

  • This is a rain or shine event.
