Because recycling operations have been determined to be an essential operation, the Hambro Recycling Center resumed recycling operations May 1. The center, located at 445 Elk Valley Rd., will enforce strict social distancing guidelines, require face coverings and have special hours for senior citizens. Hambro requests people postpone their visits if they are feeling symptoms of COVID-19 or have been around a person with the virus.

The center is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday. Special hours will be available exclusively for senior citizens each day from 8-9 a.m. The company is planning to reduce the concentration of its customers by allocating prep spaces for sorting material for processing. Additional signage will be posted. The designated areas will allow a safe distance between customers and promote the orderly flow of the redemption process. To assist in the efficient processing pre-sorting of aluminum, plastic and glass material before arrival is advised.

Operations will be monitored and observed by staff and management. To continue to operate the facility it will be mandatory that all rules and guidelines be observed and followed. The ordinary workforce will be augmented to assist spacing and rule compliance. Hambro officials ask for cooperation and buy-in from all customers to keep their operation essential.
