Hurricane Matthew Landfill Operations List & Recommendations
[UPDATE PROVIDED BY SARAH MASON, NCDA&CS]
We are getting feedback from landfills that some people are coming to the landfill without calling first. Please if you are taking animals to the landfill, be sure to do the following:
- Call 24 hours ahead to let them know you are coming and how much you hope to bring—they have to be careful of the amount they take in relation to other waste to keep the landfill functioning properly.
- If you need to take animals this weekend, please let us know (which landfill and how much you want to take) so that we can ask them to be open—they are not normally open on weekends.
Thanks so much. We want to work hard to keep the landfills happy so that they will continue to cooperate with us as they have been. Many have agreed to take animals they would not normally take.
