Why is the area (bulky, construction, and demolition) only open on Thursdays and Fridays and the 2nd Saturday until noon?
The bulky, construction, and demolition area is only open on Thursdays and Fridays and until noon on the 2nd Saturday of the month because of manpower issues and the activity of the Transfer Station. The Transfer Station, at the present staffing level, would be unable to handle the volume of traffic and activity on the weekends that opening the bulky, construction, and demolition area would generate. As it stands now, at times on the weekends there is traffic backed onto Hobart Street.
