The Transfer Station was opened in the year 2000 after the closing of the solid waste landfill. The Transfer Station accepts almost all solid waste generated in McPherson County, both commercial and residential. Materials unloaded at the Transfer Station ultimately get transferred to another location for further processing or permanent disposal. 
There are several designated areas at the Transfer Station for resdidents to unload their debris. Those areas include a recycling area, a bin for tires, bins for scrap metal and most large appliances, bins for construction and demolition materials, an area for unloading of yard materials, an area for general trash, and an area for drop off of Freon using items. Customers will be requested to separate their load at the facility if they are hauling more than one type of item. There is staff at the Station to assist in the correct placement of material, but we do not provide pull-off assistance. If you are unable to unload your vehicle yourself, MASWU recommends that whoever helped you load your vehicle come with you to help you unload.
