Recycling Program & Twiss Street Transfer Station

The Twiss Street Transfer Station effective Tuesday, March 24, 2020, at 3:00 p.m. and will remain closed until further notice.

Because many of the City’s recycling vendors have ceased operations as a result of the Governor’s order to close all non-essential businesses, items brought to the Transfer Station cannot be removed.  Until such time as our vendors are once again able to collect materials at the Transfer Station, we will remain closed.
