Transfer Station

 

From the desk of:
William Bryans, Transfer Station Caretaker and Highway Superintendent
 

The Town of Halfmoon operates a Transfer Station and Recycling Center for the convenience of its residents located at 322 Route 146 at the Highway Department Facility. 

A permit is required to utilize the Transfer Station; permits are available at the Town Clerks Office free of charge with proof of residency.  Punch cards can be purchased either at the Town Clerk’s Office or at the Transfer Station at a cost of $30.00 for 10 punches. 

The Town strives to continue to offer a facility that operates 3 days a week, the revenue collected from user fees help offset the expenses to operate this facility. 

The Town of Halfmoon Transfer Station is for Halfmoon Residents only.  The health and safety of our residents and employees is our highest priority. 

As we continue to actively monitor developments related to coronavirus (COVID-19) we want to assure you that we are taking all necessary health and safety precautions.  When using our facility, as requested by the CDC please keep a 6 foot or more distance from other residents and our employees and face covering is required at all times.

Please call me at 518-664-3127 or email me at bbryans@townofhalfmoon.org anytime.  I am here to serve all Town Residents.  Have a great day and stay safe!

ELECTRONIC RECYCLING 

For several years, the Town of Halfmoon has accepted all electronics for recycling free to our residents at the Transfer Station. By providing this drop off service throughout the year, the Town has provided a convenient option for the collection & subsequent recycling of unwanted electronics. Due to the increased costs, we have no option other than to charge a fee for disposal of CRT televisions & monitors that will offset the Towns cost of disposing of these items. Please see the attached information. For additional information, please contact Bill Bryans at the Highway Department at (518)664-3127 or bbryans@townofhalfmoon.org
