Construction & Demolition Debris
The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality requires the Astoria Transfer Station to screen for, and prevent the acceptance of asbestos. To meet this standard, Recology may require an asbestos survey from an accredited inspector or laboratory testing indicating the material doesn’t contain asbestos from loads containing construction, remodeling or demolition debris. Any items containing asbestos cannot be accepted.
Loads may be rejected if they do not comply:
Electronic Waste Drop Off
Electronic and universal waste, such as consumer batteries, cell phones, and TVs are prohibited from the trash and recycling carts because they contain poisonous heavy metals such as lead, mercury, and cadmium that can pollute groundwater and pose harmful effects to public health. Please drop off these items at this facility for safe disposal.
Our transfer stations serve as public drop-off locations for materials to be hauled and processed at nearby compost or recycling facilities. Depending on the facility, items may be sorted and then taken to their respective processing facilities based on material type. Transfer stations typically accept all sorts of recyclable materials. Please see the accepted items list or check with us before visiting to ensure acceptance of certain wastes.
