TRANSFER STATION PERMITS
The transfer station is a permit-required facility, open to all Woodbridge residents for household waste disposal and recycling. Please bring vehicle registration(s) for permit issuance to the Facilities Office, 4 Meetinghouse Lane, Room 13, Monday - Friday, 8:30 AM through 4:00 PM.
All vehicles entering the Woodbridge Transfer Station must have a permit. If a resident is having a private hauler and/or contractor dispose of debris, and the hauler does not already have a Woodbridge permit, then the homeowner is responsible for obtaining a "temporary" permit for the hauler. The hauler must provide their vehicle information such as make, model and license plate number of the vehicle they are using to haul the debris into the transfer station. The permit is issued to the homeowner for a temporary time frame only.
Woodbridge currently has 5 permitted private haulers that haul household trash and recycles for residents for a fee, or permitted residents may take their household trash and recycles to the Transfer Station on their own. For information on these 5 permitted haulers, please click here.
