Program Description

  Transfer Station

The purpose of this program is to provide a receiving, processing, and shipping facility for municipal solid waste generated within the County. In addition to regular trash, waste that is handled or recycled includes scrap metal, oil and anti-freeze, textiles, car batteries, and construction material. County staff operates the scale-house and oversees general operations, while contractors provide for the receipt and transfer of waste and operate the public unloading facility and recycling drop-off areas. This program includes enforcement of the County's ban on delivery of recyclables mixed with trash delivered for disposal and the inspection and licensing of waste collection vehicles; and provides for the regulation and enforcement of certain provisions of Chapter 48 of the County Code, including licensing requirements for refuse and recycling commercial collectors, and haulers of solid waste and recyclables.
