WHAT IS A TRANSFER STATION?
Individuals and businesses can dispose of a wide variety of solid waste

All vehicles are required to separate recyclables, tires, building materials,
construction/ demolition debris, and any other material as directed
by the attendant and unload them in appropriate areas of the facility.
MATERIALS NOT ACCEPTED INCLUDE:
Loose asbestos, asphalt, commercial hazardous waste, contaminated soil, dead animals, hot ashes, medical waste, sludge, railroad ties, yard waste and large amounts of rock, brick, concrete, or dirt.
