Dear Fishers Islanders,
During this time of uncertainty, we want to assure you that we are taking every precaution out of respect for everyone’s well-being. Fishers Islanders, seasonal and year-round, have been traveling. Many people commute to the island on a daily basis. Recognizing this ebb and flow of people and to ensure the safety of our customers and employees we will adhere to the guidelines and recommendations set forth by the World Health Organization, the CDC and our local authorities.
We are asking our staff to stay home if they are feeling unwell. We ask the same consideration from our customers. If you are feeling unwell, please do not come to either station.
We have instituted rigid cleaning protocols in all our buildings and those buildings will be closed to the public.
We will practice social distancing with our customers. At the Compost Station, the customer will not sign for any charges. The attendant will print the customer’s name on the charge slip and hand the white copy to the customer. While we will continue to accept all forms of payment, we request that the customer use credit cards.
If you need help at the Transfer Station, the attendants will remove your trash and recyclables from your car for you.
For the well-being of everyone, please consider consolidating your trips to both stations to once a week.
Alan R. Thibodeau
