LINCOLN TRANSFER STATION: The transfer station is considered an essential service and it remains open during the Governor’s declared state of emergency. We ask you to adhere to our new safety guidelines:

  1. Please wear a mask if you have one, when you come to the transfer station, to protect the health of both you and our attendants.
  2. Please arrive with all of your trash in a bag. (No more dumping of loose barrels of trash.) Place your own bag in the RED trailer or ask one of the attendants if you need help.
  3. Please dump your own recycling into the BLUE trailer, or ask an attendant if you need help.
  4. Please bring exact change or a check to pay for your trash disposal. Checks should be made out to “Moose Rubbish and Recycling”. It costs $6 for a large contractor bag. There is a bucket to drop your payment into.
  5. Please be considerate of all people you encounter at the transfer station and keep 6 feet of distance between you. Thank you for your patience, and say thank you to our essential workers too!
