RAYNHAM — Police Chief James Donovan and Fire Chief and Emergency Management Director Bryan LaCivita announce that the Raynham Transfer Station will operate under adjusted hours beginning Tuesday, March 31 to allow for residents to have more access to the station.
Effective Tuesday and continuing until further notice, the transfer station will be open to Raynham residents only Tuesday and Saturday from 7 a.m. to 4:15 p.m and Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 7 a.m. to 11:45 p.m. The station is closed Sunday and Monday.
The station’s hours were originally cut back to encourage social distancing and help prevent the spread of COVID-19. The hours have now been expanded to include additional days to ensure residents are able to get rid of their waste to keep their homes sanitary during this public health emergency.
Residents are asked to be diligent in reducing the time of their visit and to practice good hygiene and social distancing by maintaining at least 6 feet from transfer station staff and other residents.
Glass recycling is closed and other types of recycling may be restricted or closed at any time in order to reduce the amount of time residents are at the station to unload materials. The brush pile remains closed until further notice.
The Highway Department Office remains closed to the public through at least April 7.
These temporary measures will be reviewed on a continuous basis. When changes are necessary, they will be communicated to the public.
Residents can visit the Town’s official website and the Highway Department voicemail at 508-824-2718 for updates.
