Some other tips to follow:

  • Busiest times are Monday mornings as well as Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
  • Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays generally have the least number of customer visits.
  • Commercial garbage collection truck traffic generally uses the station from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays.
