Important Notes

  • All users must cover or contain their loads securely. Failure to do so is a violation of the Town Code, and contributes to unsightly roadside litter. One of the things that distinguishes Southold from much of the rest of Long Island is its clean roads. Please help keep it that way.
  • All vehicles using the scales must stop at the scale house before proceeding, EVEN IF THEY ARE ONLY GOING TO THE REUSE AREA OR HAVE FREE ITEMS (SUCH AS LEAVES) TO DISPOSE.
  • As mentioned, the Town does not provide curbside pick-up of refuse or recyclables, with the sole exception being the yard waste cleanup service [Seasonal Cleanup] provided by the Highway Department every spring and fall. All curbside pickup of trash is provided by private carter.
  • The town “Yellow Bags” have flaps designed to tie together to form a ‘handle’. Please tie appropriately to avoid litter.
  • The Transfer Station is a busy place, frequently with lots of moving vehicles. Children under 10 years of age must remain in vehicles that are using the facilities.
  • All pets must be kept in vehicles (unless required for handicapped use).
