Transfer Station Cards
Introduced in 2016, the County's Transfer Station Card program makes access to solid waste services easier and more equitable. The new cards comply with barcode scanners, allowing site operators to quickly approve valid cards, as well as invalidate non-County and expired cards..
County residents wishing to dispose of household waste at any of our eight Transfer Stations and Main Landfill Site MUST present their Transfer Station Card, in addition to a valid, government issued piece of photo identification to the site operator.
