All solid waste and recyclables being transported shall be encased by a tarpaulin, camper cover, metal cover, rigid cover, plastic, or suitable material secured to prevent leakage or blowing of materials from the vehicle. This includes adequate coverage for bagged garbage. Please bag all solid waste. Loose waste results in more litter both on site and the surrounding areas.
Bulky waste consisting of large items such as large appliances, furniture, large auto parts, trees and other oversized waste must be secured on vehicle with rope or tie-down cords.
All construction and demolition material must be weighed. All permitted solid waste companies with charge accounts and contractor's vehicles must be weighed.
Per state solid waste rules, specific materials are banned from entering landfills across North Carolina. The full list of those items can be viewed here. While this applies to the Henderson County Transfer Station, please note that the Solid Waste Division offers accommodations to process many of these items in alternative ways, such as through services provided at the neighboring Henderson County Convenience Center for residents.
NOTICE: Beginning July 1, 2015, TVs and monitors will NO LONGER be accepted at the Convenience Center. These items must be taken across the scales at the Transfer Station and incur a $10 per item fee. All other electronics can still be taken to the Convenience Center for no charge. For a list of approved recyclable electronics, visit our website. Thank you for your understanding.
