SRMT Solid Waste Transfer Station

Overview

The transfer station is located on Drum Street Road (County Route 43) and consists of an 8-acre site that is owned by the Tribe.

Construction on the transfer station began in April 2003 and the facility is scheduled to open July 2004. Residents and haulers will be allowed to bring their garbage and recyclables to the transfer station once it opens. The transfer station only functions as a holding area for the materials. The garbage is kept separate from the recyclables and once enough garbage is collected to fill a tractor-trailer, the garbage is loaded into the tractor-trailer and shipped to a regulated landfill for disposal. The recyclables are handled in a similar manner in that they are loaded into a tractor-trailer and shipped to a recycling facility for processing.

How To Prepare Your Materials Prior to Coming to the Transfer Station

Preparing your materials for disposal at the transfer station is easy and doesnít require a lot of work. The main thing to remember is to keep your garbage separate from your recyclables. Using separate bags for your garbage and recyclables is the easiest way to keep them separate. Please donít use the Tribeís blue bags to dispose of your garbage at the transfer station; you may use your own bags if you bring your garbage to the transfer station. Please prepare your recyclables according to the Tribeís recycling guide.


What to Do When You Come to the Transfer Station

The most important thing to remember when you come to the transfer station is to follow directions on the signs and any directions that the attendants at the transfer station give you. The Tribe is concerned for your safety and wants to ensure that your experience at the transfer station is positive and safe.

You will enter the transfer station and come to a stop on the scales. The scale house operator will measure your weight and then signal you to move forward. You will then proceed to area 1 and drop off your garbage. You do this by opening the door in the center of the Transtors and throwing your bags in. If you have items that wonít fit through the doors, please see the scale house operator so that he/she can open the larger hydraulic door for you. Once you have completed the disposal of your garbage proceed to down the ramp to area 2 for drop off your recyclables.
