Transfer Station & Recycling Center

The Transfer Station is a centrally-located facility for the collection, management, recycling, and disposal of solid waste, recyclable materials, and other refuse of the residents and businesses of Madison County. At the Transfer Station, our community's solid waste is transferred from collection vehicles into larger trucks, to be transported to a disposal or recycling destination outside the County. The Transfer Station commenced operations on June 1, 1999, following the closure of the County's Landfill. As a result of the closure of the County's old landfill, as well as state regulations that require maintenance of a solid waste management plan, the County is subject to a level of regulatory oversight and reporting that necessitates ongoing environmental and engineering consulting services. The County has contracted with Updike Industries Inc. for the operation of the transfer station, managing recycling operations, and hauling solid waste to the disposal site.

Each vehicle entering the Transfer Station with household trash must display a valid tag that is hung from the rearview mirror.  These "hang tags" are issued at the transfer station scale house and are free to Madison County residents.
