We have residents self punch or mark their own and deposit when used into a lockbox.  It was a calculated risk.  Despite visible abuse (receipts/coupons/misc items in the box), the honesty of others prevails.  Our income to trash removal costs is holding the same ratio as pre-covid numbers.

How are other Towns handling punch cards at transfer stations during COVID-19?

Are you still punching the cards?

Do you have any steps in place to maintain safe distancing when handling punch cards?

Besides requiring face masks, requesting folks stay home when sick or if they’ve been exposed to the virus, installation of relative signage….any other steps you have taken at your transfer station?
