Vouchers for garbage drop-off

If you want to drop items off at the South Transfer Station, you must request a voucher or authorize someone else to use a voucher.

Request a voucher

Know before you go to the station

The South Transfer Station is open Tuesday to Saturday, but you have to request a voucher before you go. You cannot show up without one, and you cannot schedule a voucher on-site at the station.  The voucher holder must remain on site throughout the process.

If you are the utility bill payer for the property, you must call us to request a voucher.

When you call to schedule a time, you'll be asked for:

  • The specific week (Tuesday to Friday) or specific Saturday you want to drop off your items
  • The name of the person who will be bringing the materials to the transfer station
  • Confirmation that the address on this person's ID matches the address on the voucher
  • The materials you plan to bring to the transfer station

  • Friend or family member
  • Contractor or garbage hauler who works for you
