The Hinsdale County Road and Bridge Department maintains a drop off point for trash and some recyling at the Hinsdale County Trasnfer Station, does all the hauling and maintenance at the Hinsdale County Transfer Station. In addition to household garbage, the transfer station accepts waste building materials, old appliances, recycled cardboard, recycled glass, recycled aluminum, cooking oil and used engine oil to be recycled. Most of the Transfer Station loads are hauled to Gunnison for recycle or the Gunnison County Landfill for disposal.

Starting January 1, 2019, Hinsdale County increased rates to dispose of trash. This increase was 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. Payment for trash dumped at the transfer station can be done on-site by check or credit card. NO CASH IS ACCPTED AT THE TRANSFER STATION. Charge accounts can be opened with a $100 deposit by calling the Hinsdale County Administration office at 970-944-2225. Accounts are billed monthly and MUST be kept current.
