Cash, checks, debit and credit cards - at the transfer station.
Cash & checks - at the compactor sites.
If you have a small number of bags or furniture items, we can tell you the charge per bag or item.
If you have a larger load which must be weighed, the charge will be based on how much weight you bring in, therefore we have to wait until you weigh out to calculate your charges. Our rate is $45 per ton, prorated.
For example: If you bring in a larger load, we will enter your vehicle weight into the computer. You will then go to the transfer station and unload. When you come back on the scale, we will enter your empty weight into the computer and your charges will be calculated based on the difference.
Sample calculation:Weight in: 8460 lbsWeight out: 7120 lbsNet weight: 1340 lbs1340 divided by 2000 (1 ton) = .67 tons.67 X $45.00 = $30.15You would owe $30.15 for 1340 lbs of garbage.
The transfer station will accept old tires. Passenger tires cost $4.00 each - tractor trailer tires and racing slicks cost $7.00 each.
The transfer station will accept paint for recycling. The charge is $2.00 per gallon.
You may also dispose of left-over paint by following these steps:
Locate a safe, dry area outside - away from pets and children. Remove the lid from the can and allow it to sit until dry. You can speed up the drying process by pouring the paint into a bucket or box lined with plastic and mixing it with kitty litter, sand, sawdust or shredded newspaper. When dry, the paint, cans and other materials may then be safely disposed of with your garbage.
Yes - at the transfer station state inmates will assist with unloading if you arrive at least 15 minutes before we close. You are responsible for letting them know if an item should not be taken off of your vehicle.
If you are using a compactor site, you are responsible for unloading your own vehicle.
