Pine Tree Corners Transfer Station

Residents and commercial haulers can bring trash to the Pine Tree Corners Transfer Station instead of 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, two transfer station buildings, and a trailer storage building. There is a separate transfer area for residents. In addition, Pine Tree Corners is a Recycling Drop-Off Center and there are designated areas outside to receive used appliances, tires, and yard waste during regular business hours.
