April 16, 2020 — Lane County’s Glenwood and Florence transfer stations are experiencing record high customer volumes during peak times, resulting in longer than normal wait times and crowded conditions.
In an effort to reduce crowds, Lane County is reminding the community that its waste disposal sites have now shifted to summer operating hours. In Florence, the transfer station at 2820 Rhododendron Dr. is open Monday to Saturday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. The Glenwood site is now open on Sundays and the Marcola, Oakridge, Rattlesnake and Vida transfer stations have expanded hours from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday.
People are encouraged to take advantage of these expanded hours. The times to avoid, if at all possible, are Saturdays and Mondays, mid-morning through the early afternoon. Avoiding those days and times will help the community continue to practice physical distancing and keep customers and staff healthy.
