Due to the latest updates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and World Health Organization, the Seymour Department of Public Works office will be closed to the general public starting Monday until further notice.
Director Chad Dixon said this will be re-evaluated on a monthly basis.
The closure includes the resource room and all e-waste drop-off. Employees will continue to pick up trash and recycling at the curb, but there will be no alley pickup.
“We ask any loose trash to be bagged in a fashionable order,” Dixon said. “A big pile of rubble will take more time to pick up.”
Any hazardous material, excluding e-waste, in its original container will be taken as normal on-site only. The facility is at 865 F. Ave East in the Freeman Field Industrial Park.
“We ask everyone to check in with the attendant on grounds at the drop-off,” Dixon said. “Visitors will get further instruction as to disposal of material on-site from the attendant.”
If homeowners have televisions or e-waste to dispose of, they should place them at the curb in front of their home on trash day. A bill will be mailed, and payment by check or money order with the invoice number included can be returned to Department of Public Works, 865 F Ave. East, Seymour, IN 47274.
“DPW will continue to take a proactive stance for the health of our employees as well as everyone in Seymour,” Dixon said. “Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause anyone.”
