Hall County will limit compactor site hours Friday, Dec. 23, 2022 due to severe winter weather that will be impacting the area Thursday evening into Christmas Day.
The compactor sites, originally scheduled to operate a full day on Friday, will now be open from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on both Friday, Dec. 23 and Saturday, Dec. 24.
“With temperatures dropping substantially Thursday evening and expected wind gusts of over 40 mph, our hope is offering these hours will allow the community to utilize our services without jeopardizing anyone’s safety,” said Srikanth Yamala, Hall County Public Works and Utilities director.
Residents needing to dispose of waste outside of the available compactor site hours on Friday are encouraged to drop off at the landfill, located at 1700 Oakbrook Drive, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.
As a reminder, the landfill will be closed Saturday, Dec. 24 for Christmas Eve, and the landfill and compactor sites will be closed Sunday, Dec. 25 for Christmas. All solid waste sites will resume normal operations on Monday, Dec. 26.
