Each punch card allows for the disposal of fifty – two (52) bags. Each bag must be 40-gallons or less. You MUST bring your punch card with you.

All transactions at the Transfer Station can be paid by check only.

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.
