Trash from the public and the City's collection trucks is dumped here, then loaded into trailers and taken to the landfill, 45 miles away. The transfer station is the last opportunity to reuse and recycle discarded items. The Recycling Center is next door to the Transfer Station, the corner of Second & Gilman Streets. One may drop off metal items, cardboard, papers, bottles and cans at no charge before weighing in at the transfer station. Charges are by the pound at the Transfer Station, open Monday through Saturday, 8am - 4:30pm. Refrigerators, mattresses, televisions, computers, monitors, tires, and concrete are recycled.
