Recycled Cardboard

Transfer Station

Transfer Station Stickers:

Stickers are available at the Town Office (Monday 12-7; Wednesday 7-2; Friday 9-2, and the 1st and 3rd Saturdays 9-1). You can also send a check and have stickers mailed to you (you must order at least 10 stickers to have them mailed to you free of charge). You can also call the office and pay with a credit card (using a credit or debit card incurs an additional 2.5% fee or $1.00, whichever is greater). Stickers are also now available for purchase at the Redemption Center (the old 10-4). The hours there are Friday 9-12 and Saturday 10-3. Stickers will not be sold at the transfer station. Punch cards will no longer be available to purchase, although existing punch cards will still be honored. If you don’t have a sticker on your trash bag, you will not be able to leave your trash. (Please ask for assistance from the attendants if you desire it!)

  • Small (up to 20 gallons)  $1.00 each

  • Medium (21-35 gallons)  $1.75 each
