Recycled Cardboard

Transfer Station

**Now Accepting Recycling!!**

Please try to pre-sort your recycling for the Transfer Station Attendants. Sort plastics by number (1, 2, 3 etc), cardboard, glass, etc to help speed things along. Please see the UARRC site for a full list of acceptable materials to bring. 

*** NEW HOURS***
As of September 4th, Transfer Station will be operating under winter hours:  Saturdays from
9 am - 3 pm

There have been incidents where people are leaving trash when the Transfer Station is CLOSED. Please note that the Transfer Station is under surveillance, and further action will be taken if this keeps occurring.

Transfer Station Stickers:

Stickers are available at the Town Office (Monday 10-7; Wednesday 7-4; Friday 9-2, and the 1st and 3rd Saturdays 9-1). You can 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), or you can 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 10-4 Redemption Center on Route 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!)
