Pay-As-You-Throw (PAYT) is the two-part system of trash disposal at the Transfer Station.

  1. Residents purchase a yearly Transfer Station Sticker for their car to be admitted to the Transfer Station.
  2. Residents purchase designated yellow Transfer Station bags in order to use the waste collection point at the station.

Transfer Station bags are sold in packages of five (5) and come in two sizes, 30 gallon and 15 gallon. (A normal kitchen trash bag is thirteen gallons). These bags are sold in packs of 5 at local retailers (see list below) and are not available at the Transfer Station.

The Pay-As-You-Throw program continues to be successful as recycling is still up and tonnage of waste hauled is down. The current annual Transfer Station sticker price is $170.00.
