Renting a truck on a weekend for moving a large load that might be over 500 pounds?

Come on Saturday, when the truck scales are open from 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.

Staff working on Sundays are directed to turn away loads over 500 pounds, for which we are required to charge under the County code.

Avoid the weekend crowds

The Transfer Station's Public Unloading Facility and Recycling lots are open until 8:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, in addition to the usual daytime hours. There is very light traffic in the evening. So, if you want to avoid long lines, try a weekday evening trip (loads must be under 500 pounds).

Help avoid mosquito breeding

Store your recycling bin out of the rain. Though the bin has drain holes, dump out even small amounts of water. Do this weekly. See more mosquito-related tips.
