Check out tour information for the South Coast Recycling and Transfer Station, below.

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, wood and yard waste.

The tour is tailored 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. You can also check out our virtual tour below.
