The DSWA Administration Office will be closed Friday, April 19 for Good Friday. All other facilities will be operating under normal business hours.
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.
