Transfer Station

Southold Transfer Station



REMEMBER: THE TOWN DOES NOT PROVIDE CURBSIDE PICKUP OF ANY GARBAGE OR RECYCLABLES. RESIDENTS WHO WISH TO HAVE THEIR GARBAGE AND RECYCLING PICKED UP MUST MAKE THEIR OWN ARRANGEMENTS WITH A PRIVATE CARTER FOR THIS SERVICE.



The transfer station is available both to self-haulers (i.e., residents who wish to bring their own garbage, recyclables, and C&D), and to commercial carters. Signage will direct users to the appropriate disposal location, and attendants are available for information.

Procedures



Self-haulers with town “Yellow Bag” garbage and recyclables access the facility from the residential or parking lot side, where there are spaces to back up to the building under a roof for protection from the elements. These users will not actually enter the tipping floor of the building, but will deposit their items over a wall into a bunker in the building located at a lower level. Yellow Bag customers with vehicle use permits will not have to pay any fee for disposal beyond the cost of their bags. Those without the permit must pay the single entry fee ($5.00 for residential vehicles). THE SINGLE ENTRY FEE WILL NOT BE CHARGED FOR USERS WHO HAVE ONLY RECYCLABLES.

Users who have debris that must be weighed at the vehicle scales, whether residential or commercial, will enter the building from the commercial side after weighing. Please follow directions of signs and attendants to deliver your debris /recyclables to the appropriate location. Again, vehicles without permits will be assessed the single entry fee.
