Transfer Station Use
How to use the Transfer Station
Pull up to the Scale House and stop just before the scales on the East side of the building. Pull forward slowly onto the scales. Enter the office and be prepared to present proof of your city residence. Stay on the scales until the attendant tells you to proceed to the Transfer Building. Enter the Transfer Building, follow the directions of the attendant and dump your material. Leave the Transfer Building and pull back onto the scales at the Scale House and weigh out. Enter the office once more, where the attendant will accept payment. The Transfer Station accepts cash, local checks, and credit cards.
All loads entering this facility must be secured so that no part of any load may escape by being windblown or by spilling from the vehicle. Offenders of this requirement may be reported to law enforcement. Loads are accepted from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. All unloading must be completed by 5:00 p.m. Loads are also accepted from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Saturdays, with all unloading required to be completed by 1:00 p.m.
NO SCAVENGING IS ALLOWED AT THE TRANSFER STATION FACILITY. NO EXCEPTIONS.
Any prohibited wastes brought into the facility will be removed by the transporter or generator of this waste.

(Citizens may dispose of sharps/needles. These MUST be in proper containers and MUST be turned in directly to the Scale House Attendant.)
Concrete & Metals
Concrete can be accepted at the Transfer Station only if it is broken into small pieces. Concrete pieces cannot be larger than 1 square foot in diameter. Fence posts with concrete attached to them will not be accepted until the concrete has been removed. Disposal of "clean" metal is accepted at the Transfer Station. No lumber or any other materials may be attached as the metal is sent for recycling and not to the landfill. Follow the Scale House Attendant's instructions to dispose of metals.
Tires are accepted at the Transfer Station facility. However, they may not be disposed of inside the Transfer Building. Tires MUST be disposed of at the Tire Container, as landfills do not accept them.
Citizens may call the Transfer Station to schedule limb pick-up and disposal. Loads may be no larger than what will fit in a standard-size truck bed.
Twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall, the City of Borger partners with the Borger Chamber of Commerce to host a week-long 'Trash-Bash.' During this time, normal weight fees associated with transfer station use are waived for all Hutchinson County residents, and there is free disposal of up to 8, 20" inch tires.
