City of Bloomington Changing Citizen Convenience Center Hours
BLOOMINGTON, IL – The City of Bloomington is reducing the operating hours for the Citizen Convenience Center next week. The reduction accounts for the decrease in winter demand for services provided by the facility. From January 14 to March 17, the Citizen Convenience Center will be open from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Beginning March 18, the weekly hours of operation for the Citizen Convenience Center will return to 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday. For both schedules, the facility will be closed on Sundays and municipal holidays. Entrance gates close 15 minutes early.
The Citizen Convenience Center is located at the corner of East Street and Jackson Street, south of the Bloomington Public Library. The facility enables people who participate in the Solid Waste Program to take their bulk waste, brush, and other acceptable items to a central location for processing rather than waiting for curbside collection. In addition, anyone can use the Citizen Convenience Center to find out information about local charities that accept donations and find out how to dispose of waste in a sustainable manner. The City provides all of these services at no additional charge.
