CLAREMONT, NH –In order to keep our residents and employees safe, the transfer station will be instituting the following procedures:
1.) Social Distance-please stretch your arm toward the employee so he can punch the ticket from a safe distance.
2.) Employees will not be opening trunks and counting trash bags, please just let them know how many bags you have.
3.) If you require assistance throwing away your trash, please stay in your car and notify the employee at the gate. He will radio his coworker to assist you.
4.) If no one is at the office, please look for the green vests. They will be sanitizing the common contact surfaces.
5.) Although we all greatly appreciate your generosity, please don’t be offended if employees refuse the food and other goodies you bring them during this time.
6.) Employees will be installing boxes near the office for your batteries and fluorescent bulbs instead of handing them directly to the employee.
This may slow the operation, but the safety of both the employees and citizens are our first concern. Thank you for your patience during this time.
There will be reduced public access to the City Clerk’s office & Welfare department effective immediately. All access for those offices will be through the main City Hall Door. Police doors will remain open. Please be careful not to touch hard surfaces and call first, if possible, to schedule an appointment.
