To ensure the safety of our attendees, staff, volunteers and vendors, there will be certain precautions in place to help navigate the COVID19 social distancing guidelines:

    1. These precautions could result in slight delays of one hour or more in line
    2. All attendees are required to stay in their cars at all times
    3. No refreshments will be offered, so please come prepared with water and a snack in case the line backs up
    4. No portable restrooms will be available
    5. Vehicle windows must remain up at all times while in the unloading zone
    6. Containers will not be returned; it is suggested to bring materials in disposal containers or boxes
    7. Materials that cannot be removed safely will remain in the vehicle and can be brought again at the next event

This level of preparedness and awareness will enable a safe and successful event for everyone. We appreciate your patience!
