The Transfer Station & Recycle Facility is open Tuesdays and Saturdays weekly and the hours of operation 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.  The facility was created to divert potential recyclable waste materials from the landfill.

All loads being hauled must be secured and loose material must be covered by a tarpaulin or other device.

Rural residents can use our recycle facility and are encouraged to drop-off their blue bag recyclables during regular operating hours as outlined at the bottom of  the garbage collection schedule.  Blue bag items must follow the items listed above (papers, cardboard, metals, plastic).  All items must be placed in transparent bags.
