Transfer stations are open only to residents of the municipality for their regularly
generated household garbage and small quantities of remodeling
This is specified in both local County law and the contract
between the municipality and County for the use of each station.
The rule of thumb for quantity allowed for remodeling waste is the
equivalent of five pick up truckloads for any one project (except
Northampton, which accepts only 3 loads of remodeling debris). If a
resident says they will have more than this quantity, they should be
advised to hire a private hauler to handle the job. Call the Depart-
ment of Solid Waste at 518-736-5501 for a list of permitted haulers in your area.
