Town offices to close Thursday, Friday for holiday

Town offices in South Boston and Halifax will be closed Thursday and Friday for the Christmas holiday. In the Town of South Boston, curbside residential refuse collection for the Thursday and Friday routes will be collected on Wednesday, officials said. Residential refuse collection for the remainder of the week will remain the same, they added.

Town residents are reminded all refuse must be placed at the curb before 7 a.m.

Commercial downtown refuse collection will be on Monday and Wednesday only this week. Commercial downtown refuse collection scheduled for Friday will be collected on Wednesday.

South Boston residents who have questions or need additional information can contact the public works department at 575-4260.

In the Town of Halifax, Town Hall also will be closed Thursday and Friday in observance of the Christmas holiday and again on Friday, Dec. 31, in observance of New Year’s, according to Halifax Town Manager Carl Espy.

Halifax Town Hall will be open for regular business hours from Monday, Dec. 27, through Thursday, Dec. 30, Espy said.

Because of the dates of the holidays this year, the regular Town of Halifax solid waste and recycling schedule will remain in effect, the town manager said.

During the holiday schedule, town residents may continue to take their properly prepared recyclable materials to the large bins provided at the Blue Ridge Regional Jail lower parking lot, the town manager said. The bins accept newspaper (mixed paper also is accepted), #1 and #2 plastic, cardboard, aluminum and metal cans, and clear, green and brown mixed consumer glass.

“When recycling glass at the convenience center site, please place the glass directly into the bin with no bags,” Espy said. “This will keep the glass free of contaminants so that sorting will not be necessary.”

This area includes Mountain Road, Canterbury Drive, Woodview Road, Mimosa Drive, Oak Lane, Pine Road, Ash Street, Cedar Lane, Poplar Lane, Crawford Road, Academy Street, Ballpark Loop (within corporate limits), Craddock Street, Houston Street and Main Street from Mountain Road south to the railroad tracks.
