Most of the general public utilizes the Transfer Station site, which is located at 5050 West Old Potash Highway, just 3 miles west of Grand Island, at the corner of Monitor Road and Potash Highway. The Transfer Station is the proper site for manual unloading of materials, and is also the location for the Yard Waste Site.

All incoming loads need to be covered with a tarp or net.  

Items that are more than 8 feet in length will not be allowed for disposal at the transfer station.  Please contact the superintendent at (308) 385-5433, Ext.4, to discuss other options.

The Solid Waste Fees lists the charges for the various types of materials.

Tree Grass, Leaves, and Tree Branches 

The Transfer Station offers to residential customers free disposal of grass, leaves, and tree branches. The Yard Waste Site has a separate entrance located on Monitor Road, just North of the Transfer Station building.  Hours are 10:00a.m. - 6:00p.m. Monday - Friday and 8:00a.m. - 4:00p.m. on Saturday.  Grand Island residents can use the yard waste site from 7:00a.m. until the site opens by entering the South gate, stopping on the scale, and visiting with office staff via intercom.

Yard waste to be disposed of must be clean of waste and debris and must be emptied from garbage bags at the time of disposal. Customers delivering yard waste must ensure that loads are properly secured so as to prevent littering along the roadways.  Free disposal of yard waste is only for homeowner and renters, not contractors for hire.
