Most Thurston County Offices Closed for Veterans' Day

OLYMPIA - In observance of the Veteran's Day holiday, virtually all offices and agencies of Thurston County government will be closed on Monday, November 12th. The exception is the Waste and Recovery Center (WARC) on Hogum Bay Road, which will be fully operational on the 12th. That means the WARC, tollhouse, HazoHouse, transfer station, recycling and dog park will all be available to the public. There will be full staffing for the tollhouse and HazoHouse but no one will be at the Solid Waste field office at the WARC. Curbside collections in the unincorporated area of the county, scheduled for Monday the 12th, will go on as usual.
