FAQ

What materials does the Transfer Station accept?

We accept all types of garbage including construction and demolition waste. We also accept scrap metal and waste oil for free.

Where does my garbage go when it leaves the Transfer Station?

All garbage and trash is loaded into a semi-truck and goes to a large landfill in Illinois.  Other materials go to various recycling facilities for proper processing.

What are tipping fees?                                   

Tipping fees are the amount charged per ton of garbage. 

Do you accept credit/debit cards?

Along with cash and checks, the Transfer Station accepts both credit and debit cards.

Why are there different fees for certain items like tires, appliances and electronic waste?

Appliances and electronic waste have components that cannot be landfilled with regular garbage. The Waste Authority pays to have these items hauled to special recyclers for processing and recovery.
