Town Hall - Monday – Friday with CASH or CHECK.
Transfer Station - Tuesday – Saturday with CHECK only.

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. Each punch card allows for the disposal of fifty – two (52) or twenty-five (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.
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
