Staff will not accept roofing shingles. Residents must show a valid Michigan driver's license or identification as proof of residency.
In addition to the requirement to wear masks, customers utilizing the convenience station are encouraged to have materials pre-sorted in the trunk of their vehicle or truck bed to allow staff to easily access and remove materials. Staff will not remove materials from back seats.
Phil Karwat, Director of Public Works, commented on the enhanced guidelines, “We are pleased to reopen this station once again for our residents. However, these rules have been put in place to minimize direct contact between employees and customers at the convenience station.
