What is a Transfer Station?

Garbage and construction material is brought to transfer stations from homes and business in our service area and beyond. From here the material is quickly loaded or “transferred” into large tractor trailers which take the material to landfills.

Can I Use the Transfer Station?

Yes, homeowners and businesses can use the transfer station to drop off large loads of waste material. Material is usually brought to the transfer station in trailers and trucks. We often serve roofing companies, trucks from local villages, junk clean out companies, landscaping companies, and building contractors. You pay for the amount of material you drop off.

Waste is charged by the ton. We will take smaller loads of material under 2000 lbs (1 ton). There is a minimum charge of $60.00 for loads of material under 2000 lbs.
