Transfer Station Tours

As its name implies, the materials that arrive at a transfer station don't stay there for very long. On our educational tours, we'll tell you where everything goes and provide tips on how to reduce your environmental impact. Read below for more info.

The County’s South Coast Recycling and Transfer Station serves as a central collection point for a large portion of the non-hazardous waste generated on the South Coast. The station receives commercial roll-off containers, as well as waste brought in by residents and small, non-franchised haulers (e.g. landscapers).

The Transfer Station is also home to a recycling center that processes approximately 200 tons per day of recyclable materials including commingled recyclables, appliances, automobile batteries, bicycles, Christmas trees, construction and demolition debris, electronics, used tires, and wood and yard waste.

If you’re interested in touring the Transfer Station, please contact our Outreach Specialist, Sam Dickinson, at (805) 882-3618 or send him an e-mail. Sam will tailor the tour to the interests and needs of your group and can provide information on such topics as our region’s waste history, waste diversion efforts, and actions being taken to protect the environment.

Our tours are offered year-round for free for groups or organizations of five or more people. The age minimum for this tour is 7 years old.
