McCourtney Transfer Station Correction

said on August 21st, 2012 filed under: Grass Valley, Neighborhood Profiles, Whimsy

The McCourtney Transfer Station

Last week I reported incorrectly the hours of operation. 

“Hours:  8 am to 3:00 pm every day of the week.  I thought McCourtney was closed on Monday and Tuesday, but I am looking at the new brochure and it plainly says, “every day.”

I was right the first time.  Drove out there today, Tuesday, and the dump was closed.  The sign on the gate says plainly that it is open “5 days a week, Wednesday through Sunday.”

The McCourtney Transfer Station brochure is incorrect.

Closed MONDAY and TUESDAY!

Maybe I saved you a useless trip.  You would have been mad at me, I bet.
