Locally in Hardin County, Red River Waste Solutions will continue their regularly scheduled routes. In addition, we are asking all citizens to bag all material placed for trash collection. Out of an abundance of caution due to COVID-19, waste collectors have been instructed not to pick up any loose trash, trash placed on the ground or trash stuck inside receptacles. Each bag should be hand tied by gathering and twisting the neck of the bag and using a tie or hand knot to secure the bag, and each container should be securely closed.
If you have developed a fever or respiratory symptoms and believe you have had exposure to a known case or traveled to an area with community spread, isolate yourself from others in your home and contact your healthcare provider or local health department to describe your symptoms and any recent travel before you go to the healthcare facility.
