Transfer Station Rate Changes

Starting January 1, 2019, Hinsdale County has increased rates to dispose of trash at the county transfer station. This increase is necessary to keep up with increased costs of transporting and disposing trash at the landfill in Gunnison. The last increase was in 2015. Rates on compactible and non-compactible items have been increased, including bagged trash, truck loads and trash trucks. Some rates have also been increased on other items accepted at the transfer station. For a downloadable rate list, click here.

In addition, the transfer station is NO LONGER ACCEPTING CASH PAYMENTS as of January 1, 2019. Acceptable forms of payment at the transfer station are by credit card or check. Transfer Station accounts are available by calling the Hinsdale County Administration Office at 970-944-2225. A $100 deposit is required to open an account, and accounts are billed monthly.
