The vouchers are for a normal pick-up truck load that is covered. If it is not covered or if it is more than a normal pick-up truck load, you will be charged extra. You may pick up your vouchers at the Salem City office during business hours. These vouchers can be used anytime from April 1, 2019 through the end of November 2019.
