Due to the COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines, several major operational changes have been implemented at this time.

  • Due to the social distancing guidelines, residents will be required to please remain in their vehicle, when dropping off items inside the building.
  • The City of Abilene and OCCK would like to remind residents to make every effort to properly sort their recyclable items.  This is the normal expectation and procedure, but it is even more important as users will remain in their vehicles. This will reduce unloading time.
