How do I transport a load to the station?

All loads must be secured and covered to prevent litter and highway hazards.

A fee of $10.00 will be charged for an unsecured load.

Tips to keep everyone safe and avoid fees:

  • Use a tarp that will completely cover your trailer or truck bed.
  • At least four inches should overlap the sides, front, and back of your load.
  • Tightly secure the tarp with ropes, bungee cords, netting, or straps.
  • Put lighter items at the bottom of the load.
  • When transporting large items, make sure they are tied down and secured to the truck or trailer so they don't move.
  • Don't overload. Keep material level with the truck bed or trailer.
  • Before leaving the transfer station, remove any loose material that may remain in the trailer or truck bed.

Mixed recycling includes:

  • Paper
  • Plastic
  • Metal
  • Glass
