Overview of Transfer Station and Recycling Facility

This is a brief overview of how residents will be disposing of their trash. We would like to emphasize if you are uncertain of the location to drop off an item or have any questions at all, please ask the staff. We will gladly advise you in the proper method of disposal. As always, thank you for your cooperation and support.

 New Transfer Station Decals

Decals will be replaced every year in January to have increased control on who accesses the transfer station. Stickers may also be obtained from Town Hall at the Town Clerk/Tax Collector’s office and the Public Works Administration office.

Note: residents will be required to show proof of residency in order to receive a new sticker and all stickers must be placed on the driver’s side windshield, lower left hand corner.

Traffic Flow

The new transfer station layout requires a one-way traffic pattern to safely and quickly move residents through the facility. All residents will enter on Fearon Rd. Residents that wish to recycle will bear left at the fork and continue into the recycling facility to drop-off their items, exit the building, and bear left again to the other drop-off areas. If you do not wish to recycle, you will proceed on Fearon Rd. and turn left to continue to the other drop-off areas.

Disposal Fees

All residents must pay the appropriate fees for the item(s) they wish to dispose of. A receipt will be issued as a proof of payment. Under NO circumstances should ANY items associated with a fee be placed in the Swap Shop. Regardless of condition, all items MUST be paid for and placed in their designated areas.
