COVID-19 UPDATE (5/22/20) - GLRA IS OPEN AND OPERATING AS NORMAL.

85350

GLRA is OPEN and OPERATING AS NORMAL. This includes the trash, recycling, electronics, green waste, clean wood, and compost areas during our normally established business hours for each of these services.  

GLRA recognizes that its landfill and dumping areas are outdoors; yet we are practicing social distancing directives. In an abundance of caution, GLRA is asking that ALL CUSTOMERS WEAR A MASK.  

The Administrative Offices are CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC. GLRA’s phones will be open and operational during our regular business hours for questions and concerns. Our website is also a great resource and will keep residents and businesses up to date on our operating procedures during this time.

The Electronics Recycling Facility is OPEN to the public under its normal operating hours of 8:00 AM to 3:30 PM Monday through Friday and 8:30 AM to 11:30 AM on Saturday.

The Recycling Drop-Off Center is OPEN to the public under its normal operating hours of 8:00 AM to 3:50 PM Monday through Friday and 8:00 AM to 11:45 AM on Saturday.

 Plant Bedding and Wood Mulch sales ARE AVAILABLE to the public during the normal loading hours 8:00 AM to 11:00 AM Monday through Friday and 8:30 AM to 11:30 AM on Saturday. HOWEVER, there will be NO DELIVERIES of plant bedding or wood mulch until further notice. LIMITED SUPPLIES OF PLANT BEDDING---FIRST COME FIRST SERVE.

The Greater Lebanon Refuse Authority strongly encourages those that are using this time to clean up around the house to wait until the Governor’s Stay-At-Home Order is lifted to deliver waste from these home clean-ups to the Landfill.  Chances are the wastes generated from a residential clean-up are items that have been in your home for a long time and waiting until the travel restrictions have been lifted will not cause any sanitary issues.  If you feel the “residential clean-up waste” must be disposed-off prior to the lifting of the travel restrictions we strongly suggest that you please contact a Licensed Commercial Waste Hauler.  A list of licensed haulers and phone numbers is available at our website in the Help Center tab.  

For those customers that must deliver waste and do not have a charge account, GLRA requests that you use a Credit Card for payment.  This small step will reduce the handling of cash which will minimize the exposure to and our employees and our customers. 

The above operational modifications have been implemented in response to the COVID-19 Crisis.  Please know the Authority is working diligently to continue to make municipal solid waste services as accessible as possible for the commercial waste haulers who are out in your communities picking up the weekly trash from residents, businesses, and institutions.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, however, the safety of our customers and employees is our highest priority. We must protect our staff and the public while still maintaining our essential functions of municipal solid waste collection and disposal for Lebanon County at this time.

Your safety and the safety of our workers is paramount! Please stay home, stay calm and stay safe!

As anything changes, we will be sure to keep our NEWS FLASH on our homepage updated.
