Dear Fishers Islanders,

The District has been closely monitoring the ongoing events concerning the corona virus, and the mandates being put forth from government agencies. As such the District has determined that in the interest of its employees and community members the following changes will be implemented:

As of Monday, March 23rd, the Compost Station will be closed until further notice.

As of Monday, March 23rd, the Transfer Station will be only open for normal posted hours during the weekday. It will not be open for the weekends until further notice. When bringing waste to the Transfer Station, have all waste separated and cardboard cut to 2×2 pieces. This will allow for quick transfer of trash and allow for the proper social distancing.

For members of the community taking part in the Pilot Organic Composting, due to the limited staff and hours, we will be suspending the collection of organics until further notice.

These policies will be reviewed weekly and any updates will be posted on Facebook, the District’s website and

These changes are temporary and hopefully, if everyone works together, be over quickly.

Everyone please be smart and stay well.

Thank you,

Alan R. Thibodeau
Operations Manager
Fishers Island Waste Management District
