Residents and commercial haulers can bring trash to the Rt. 5 Transfer Station rather than driving to one of DSWA’s landfills. Vehicles drive up a ramp into an enclosed building where trash is dumped onto a concrete floor. A backhoe carefully pushes the trash into a transfer trailer, which takes it to a DSWA landfill. Key features of the transfer station consist of a scale house, two scales, a transfer station building with a five-bay tipping floor, and a small load drop-off where residents can deposit waste. In addition, there are designated areas outside to receive used appliances, tires, and yard waste.
There are no upcoming events at this time.
