The Transfer Station project is almost complete with concrete roads, signs, and security cameras all in place. Beginning Wednesday June 28, residents with yard waste and brush need to enter the site and turn right immediately after the new gate. Residents will then drive on the north side of the scale and follow the signs.
Commercial customers with yard waste and brush will still enter on the scale for weighing. All tree branches over 4-inch in diameter will need to enter on the scale for charges. All loads must be inside the vehicle, with no overhanging branches.
- “After Hours” drop off for yard waste and brush, located north of the entrance gate, will open Thursday evening, June 29th. The hours will be 5:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Mondays and Thursdays, and Saturdays 12:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The site will not be open on holidays and the closing time will adjust as daylight shortens. The “After Hours” site will close for the season on October 30th and reopen April 1st. No commercial customers or tree branches over 4-inch diameter are allowed in the “After Hours” site. Yard waste may include grass clippings, leaves, flowers, garden plants, and pine needles. Brush is a woody branch from trees, roses, and bushes, all smaller than 4-inches in diameter. Yard waste and brush must be separated for disposal. All bags, paper, and plastic must be emptied, and trash cans are available for bags on site. Please unload as close to the wall as possible so there is room for everyone.
- There is a fee and requirements for concrete disposal, all concrete must enter on the scale to be directed to the correct unloading area.
- Cameras are active on the entire site. Customers that do not separate yard waste or dispose of items improperly will be charged clean-up and disposal fees. Charges will be directed to the owner of the vehicle. Please read all signs on what is and what is not excepted.
