TAYLOR — GFL is temporarily suspending all curbside yard waste pickup effective Monday, April 13. Curbside trash, bulk and recycling will continue as scheduled.
Simultaneously, the city Transfer and Compost Facility, 16300 Racho Road, will be open and accept compost dropoffs during regular business hours, 8 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays.
There are special rules for compost drop offs:
• You must be a resident and show identification at the entrance.
• Dropoffs should stop at the gate, wait in the vehicle with their windows rolled up, and just show their identification to the gate attendant through the closed window.
• During the COVID-19 pandemic, compost dropoffs will be free and will not count against annual single-drop limit.
• There will be no help or assistance upon dropping compost, in an effort to keep both residents and employees safe.
GFL’s temporary measures in suspending compost curbside pick are necessary to not only protect communities and its front line employees from the risks of COVID-19, but also allow the company to free up personnel and equipment to keep up with the increasing amount of residential solid waste that is being generated at this time. GFL’s first priority is to make sure it has capacity available to perform the essential services of municipal solid waste and recycling collection and disposal.
Regular service will resume when it is ruled safe to do so.
