Transfer Station & Recycling Center - Orange Residents Only 

(March 2021 Shed damaged, temporarily unavailable)


Plastic Bag Recycling Resumes at the Transfer Station

June 20, 2020 ~ From Committee Chair Mitch Goldblatt:

Home Depot store manager Matt Hyatt and his associate Pete delivered a new Plastic Bag & Wrap Recycling shed to the Orange Transfer Station & Recycling Center. With the help of Transfer Station Equipment Operator Gerry Butler, we had it set up and ready to go within minutes. This is a temporary structure as Home Depot has approval for a permanent structure, but it may be several months away.
