Waste Transfer Stations

Phase 1 of the Hunter Transfer Station Reconstruction Project began July 1, 2020 and is expected to continue until August 14, 2020.   At this time, all construction and demolition debris must be disposed at the Windham or Catskill Transfer Stations.  Hunter Transfer Station will continue to accept recycling, bagged garbage, and commercial MSW.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your cooperation as we work to improve services at the Hunter Transfer Station.

Dispose in Greene

Our goal is to accept and efficiently dispose of the municipal solid waste stream, including construction and demolition debris, and to process and market the source-separated recyclables generated by the county’s residents and businesses.

When you Dispose in Greene, your tipping fees support a full service Solid Waste Management program, covering municipal solid waste, construction and demolition debris, household hazardous waste collection and a full recycling program. Our transfer stations system provides an easy, efficient and low cost alternative to hiring a garbage hauler. Do it yourself drop off of your trash and recyclables saves you money and keeps jobs in Greene County. We also accept those hard to dispose of items like furniture, mattresses, refrigerators, tires and electronics. Details and fees for acceptance follow below.
