Notice: Transfer Station to close permanently


Post Date: 06/17/2019 4:43 PM

Effective at noon on Saturday, June 22, 2019, the Transfer Station at Incinerator Road will be closed and will no longer accept trash and recycling. 

The determination to close the facility was based on its structural deterioration, which has reached a critical state, and environmental concerns related to its continued operation in an outdated and undersized space.  Rehabilitation of the facility was considered and ultimately rejected after studies disclosed the site was too small and lacked sufficient access rights to house a legally compliant and effective facility.  Appropriate municipal uses of the property are now being evaluated. 

Please call Waste Management at 1-800-972-4545 to schedule all bulk items and white good collections. Residents should place all household trash in bags and in each household's 64-gallon trash cart for curbside weekly collection. Do not put trash into recycling carts.  For more information on recycling, please see

We apologize for the short notice and appreciate everyone's patience as we work to find a sustainable solution.
