Transfer Station

The City operates a solid waste transfer station at its Palafox Street facility.  The transfer station is used by city route collectors and is not open to the public.  Waste delivered to the transfer station is loaded onto transfer trailers and transported to the disposal site or recycling facility, thus eliminating the need for all sanitation vehicles to travel to the disposal site. This reduces wear and tear on the vehicles, maximizes productivity for units in the field, and minimizes traffic at the landfill.
