You will continue to use the drive closest to the railroad tracks, across from Car-e-its back parking lot. Stay to the right and drive all the way to the last building. You will be using the very last big overhead door in the last building to pull into. Please wait for an attendant to direct you and help you. Please remain in your car so they can keep things moving. You will then exit to the right. Please be patient and bear with us for this new work in process. Thank you from the Putnam County Solid Waste District, Putnam County Commissioners Office and especially from the Recycling Employees out there!
