Vehicle Limit to be Lifted at Transfer Station

It was a policy that didn’t work. Waste Management is now abandoning its idea to limit traffic at the McCourtney Road Transfer Station. Beginning Wednesday, the 200-vehicle limit will no longer be in effect. According to a news release, the company said “Initial attempts to convince Nevada County residents to only use the transfer station to dispose of essential items failed as the facility continued to have more vehicles arriving daily than before the Covid-19 pandemic began. An attempt to limit the total number of vehicles created unrest and unruly behavior among customers that also placed Waste Management employees at risk.” One new change is that all customers must wear a face mask to gain access to the facility.
