Transfer Station – Notice to users

Citizen advisory general

Effective June 1, 2018, Deer Park residents and businesses are advised that dual-axle/commercial trailers will not be permitted access to the Transfer Station, located at 610 Underwood.

According to Ben Alexander, Sanitation Supervisor, the measure is intended to improve efficiency at the facility and allow Deer Park residents to drop off debris as quickly as possible.

“The Transfer Station’s weekend depository was originally intended for the average residents who didn’t want to wait until our weekly heavy trash days to dispose of yard waste or debris from work around the house,” Alexander said. “Over the years, more contractors began to use the depository after completing remodels or repairs within our city limits, bringing industrial-sized trailers into the facility. 

“Because of confined spacing within the facility, these dual-axle trailers are preventing customers with smaller vehicles from entering the facility promptly, with waits as long as 30 minutes to dispose of their items. We hope, by limiting the size of trailers admitted to the facility, to streamline the process for all of our patrons.”
