Transfer Station

In 2016, Palermo residents voted to contract with the Town of China for use of its Transfer Station, located at 191 Alder Park Rd. Access to the Transfer Station is regulated by a RFID Tag that hangs in your rearview mirror. Every property in Palermo is entitled to one RFID Tag and additional passes are available for a returnable $10 deposit. Palermo residents need to purchase labeled trash bags to use the dumpsters at the Transfer Station, which are available at the Palermo Town Office or Tobey's General Store on Rt. 3.

You can find more information about China's Transfer Station, including their recycling and waste policies on their website and below.

The China Transfer Station is located at 191 Alder Park Road. The Transfer Station is staffed by Ron Marois, Tim Grotton, Gary McCarty, Andy Cowing, and Joshua Watson. The town and staff at the transfer station would like to encourage residents to recycle more and throw less trash in the "hopper." A substantial savings can be realized if all community members participate in the various recycling programs the transfer station offers.
