High Visibility Safety Vest

Do I need to wear a Safety Vest? If you are unloading materials in the Transfer Station (i.e. asphalt shingle recycling, construction & demolition materials, or trash/recycling brought in a commercial truck or hydraulic-dump trailer) the answer is "YES".  Safety Vests will be sold at the Landfill Scale for $5.00/each if you do not have one.  This rule is for your safety, as the Transfer Station is a HIGH CONGESTION AREA.  For more information please see the Safety Vest Notice 09012016.
