What’s a Transfer Station?

A transfer station is a facility that accepts large quantities of waste. This waste is collected from roll-off containers, or residents or businesses will come to the transfer station and drop off their own waste. The waste is then sorted into categories, such as recyclables, metal, and trash.

After the materials have been sorted, they’re sent off to be recycled or disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner. This means that fewer resources are used to dispose of this material than if you were to do it yourself with conventional methods such as using a landfill. While many people find themselves overwhelmed when dealing with large amounts of trash, using a transfer station can make this process much simpler and less time-consuming.

What can you bring?

We accept regular household items such as paper products, appliances, plastics, glass containers, and electronics. We also accept items from home renovations or demolition projects, such as concrete, asphalt, and other construction debris. In addition to waste generated from your home or business, we also accept large amounts of bulk waste from industrial operations. Items accepted include metals/alloys, wood products (such as pallets), and rubber. If you are not sure what is accepted, it’s best to call ahead and confirm.

Please note we do not accept yard waste/ organics, blue box recycling and hazardous waste such as paint, oil, and other chemicals.
