The Saratoga Springs Transfer Station serves the residents of the City of Saratoga Springs as well as other surrounding communities and is operated by DPW. The Transfer Station Facility primarily consists of a waste drop-off area where bagged and other non-recycled waste is deposited into a large stationary trash compactor. An adjacent small office building provides space for a DPW attendant to oversee operation of the compactor and provide service to the public.
The transfer station operates at 41 Weibel Avenue from 8:00 am to 3:45 pm, Tuesday through Saturday. Anyone can participate in the use of the transfer station and recycling center. Bags can be purchased for $4 each at the Transfer Station, the Department of Public Works at 5 Lake Avenue, or at the Weibel Ave Saratoga Springs Stewart's Shop.
Saratoga County uses a single-stream recycling process, so residents do not need to separate recyclables. The Transfer Station Facility accepts Single Stream Recyclables. Click here for more information on recycling in Saratoga.
Every other year Saratoga Springs has a Household Hazardous Waste Day, which is reimbursed 50% through a grant from NYSDEC. The Hazardous Waste Day allows Saratoga Springs City residents to get rid of harmful toxic substances and pollutants that can eventually end up in our watershed. Contact the Department of Public Works to see when the next event will be hosted.
