Spring cleaning
Happy Spring! Don't forget that transfer stations are great resources to help you properly dispose of anything you need to get rid of!
 
Household Chemicals We accept hazardous waste at our Gleason Road Transfer station year round, but if you've been saving up, check this schedule to see when we will be picking up from your transfer station.
Leaf & Yard Debris Did you know that it's illegal to throw away leaf and yard debris in the landfill? Luckily, there are lots of other things you can do with it:
  • Compost it!- adding 2-3 parts leaves and other brown materials to 1 part food scraps in a pile will give you great soil next spring!
  • Drop off at transfer station- Most transfer stations accept leaf and yard waste for free. Depending on the type of debris, our gleason road transfer station may have a charge.
  • Burn it?- Only clean wood (untreated). Burning brush or leaves can put harmful pollutants into the air (and get harsh stares from your neighbors).
