Due to the recent fire at the Transfer Station located on Enterprise Way off Indian Lakes Road behind Rattlesnake Hill, a temporary waste disposal location has been set up at 327 North Maine and will remain open seven days a week from 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Household waste and small remodel waste should be bagged if possible, and those can be thrown into the waste bins. “If it is not, let the gate attendants know and we will do the off-loading,” said Byrd.
Any landfill users who already have an account at the landfill south of town should use that facility, and if anyone needs to open a landfill account, they are encouraged to make a request and complete that paperwork at the 327 North Maine location with the staff there.
Byrd said if someone has a huge load of garbage, they can take it to the temporary location to process the payment and then take it out to the landfill.
The structural analysis on the Transfer Station has been completed, according to Byrd, and the building manufacturer is due on-site for a review as well. “It’s not looking like we’ll have to tear the whole thing down,” he said, which will expedite the process. Within the next few weeks, public works staff should have some idea of how long it will be to make repairs and re-open the facility.
For the most part, the temporary facility has been a successful short-term solution, said Byrd. “We can accommodate just about anybody.”
