The Town of Washington operates a Transfer Station at the same location as the Public Works Garage. It is staffed by 1 full time employee. Both recyclables and solid waste are brought here and then deposited into roll off containers for transportation to a Materials Recovery Facility or marketer. The Highway Department is responsible for the transportation of all waste accepted at the facility. Dave DeFosse is the full time manager and is responsible for the daily operation of the Transfer Station.
The picture shown above is the 2004 Kenworth T-800 roll off truck with trailer purchased new in 2004. This truck hauls all materials accepted at the Transfer Station. The household trash and bulky waste is trucked to Berlin, NH and deposited in a landfill. The trailer allows us to haul 2 loads at a time and has proven to be very cost effective.
