Waste transfer station to close for three days Waste transfer station to close for three days (November 30, 2005)

Attention, all you householders, contractors and others with a load of junk to be taken to the transfer station: Don't plan to take it between Thursday, December 8, and Saturday, December 10.

Allied Waste Services/BFI plans to close the transfer station at 225 Shoreway Road in San Carlos for routine maintenance.

Regular service for picking up garbage, recycling and yard trimmings will continue unaffected, said spokeswoman Stacey Wagner.

For people who haven't noticed, the good news is that it's gotten cheaper to dispose of construction and demolition debris at the transfer station. Ever since September, Allied Waste has reduced these fees to the same rate they charge for garbage -- $20 a cubic yard.

The transfer station also accepts electronic waste, including computer monitors and other electronic equipment, free of charge, either at the transfer station, or at the Recyclery up the street at 333 Shoreway Road.

"Allied Waste Services/BFI believes that even more customers will recycle their e-waste now that there is no fee to drop off the material," said General Manager Chris Valbusa.

The transfer station is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Saturday and Sunday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Recyclery is open Monday through Saturday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
