The Process

The Jefferson County Transfer Station collects recycling using the “Single Stream” method. This allows recyclers to place all acceptable materials together in to one bin or container. The recyclables are then transported to a Material Recovery Facility (MRF) where they are separated and prepared for sale, a video of the separation process can be found here.

The Transfer Station

At the Transfer Station community members can deposit recycling in the Single Stream Compactor FREE OF CHARGE! Simply remove recycling from any plastic bags and dump the recycling into the hopper. Site Attendants are always available to help unload and answer any question you may have.
