Anyone electing to use the Transfer Station must have a Permit. Each Permit holder will be issued a sticker; the sticker must be kept with the punch card at all times so it is clearly visible to the attendant.

In addition to a permit, a punch card must be purchased to avoid a fee each time the facility is used. The punch card will be “punched” by the attendant depending on the quantity of refuse brought to the Transfer Station. The number of “punches” is determined at the discretion of the attendant acting within the guidelines established by the Town.

Punch cards allow for  disposal as follows:

·         52 (fifty-two) Punch Card  allows for disposal of 52 bags

·         25 (twenty-five) Punch Card allows for disposal of 25 bags.

·         Each bag must be 40-gallons or less.

·         You MUST bring your punch card with you. 

All transactions at the Transfer Station can only be paid by check. Make payable to Town of East Greenbush

Residents may purchase as many punch cards as necessary. Remaining “punches” at the end of the year are rolled over to the following calendar year. NO REFUNDS will be granted to anyone who purchases a permit regardless of the time of year or circumstances surrounding such refund request
