North 48th Street Small Vehicle Transfer Station
The North 48th Small Vehicle Transfer Station is located at 5101 North 48th Street, approximately one mile north of 48th and Superior.
Grass and leaves, brush, appliances, metals and tires must be sorted out and placed in designated areas of the site for recycling. Waste oil and lead acid batteries are also separated for recycling at this facility. Appliances, waste oil and lead acid batteries can be recycled at other locations for a smaller fee.
All loads entering the transfer station must be covered. By keeping the load covered, there is far less blowing debris on the road to the landfill and at the facility itself.
