New Operating Hours for Solid Waste Transfer Stations Will Begin in January

OSWEGO – Beginning Jan. 1, Oswego County solid waste transfer stations will be open four days a week.

All of the transfer stations will continue to be open Saturdays from 8 a.m. to noon.

Weekdays hours are 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Sticker sales and weigh scales end ½-hour before the transfer stations close.

The new schedule is as follows:
• Bristol Hill: Open Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday. Closed Tuesday and Friday.
• Hannibal: Open Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Closed Monday and Thursday.
• Hastings: Open Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Closed Monday and Wednesday.
• Oswego: Open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Closed Wednesday and Friday.
• Pulaski: Open Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Closed Tuesday and Thursday.

A special committee of the County Legislature spent several months earlier this year studying operating costs and operation of the five county transfer stations.

The new schedule was developed as an alternative to a phased-in closure of individual transfer stations.

Beginning Jan. 1, weigh and pay fees at the transfer stations will go up to $125 per ton; tip fees at the landfill and Energy Recovery Facility (ERF) increase to $65 per ton; and construction and demolition rates for major haulers will increase to $50 per ton.

The residential sticker fee will go up $10 to $175 for 2015.

Oswego County transfer stations and recycling drop-off centers are located at Bristol Hill, 3125 NYS Route 3, Volney; 1167 County Route 7, Hannibal; 1391 U.S. Route 11, Hastings; 700 E. Seneca St., Oswego; and 100 County Route 2A, Pulaski.

  1. So we pay more and get less. What is wrong with you people? I do not understand why we pay more and get less. Please explain it to me. Bristol hill has to be open anyway does it cost that much more to keep the transfer station open? You people need a course in economics, time management, scheduling and asset utilization.

  2. This is ridiculous people dont have that kind of money just to drop off some unwanted things laying around, im sure a lot of people are not happy with this change. All of a sudden the prices go up because of other transfer stations prices and fees. How should that affect our rates?

  3. I do not understand why Bristol hill is closed to the public but is still open to contractors, it cannot cost that much for to workers to man the transfer station daily as long as the facility is open anyway. Did you ever try to go to Bristol Hill on a Saturday? It is next to impossible. Every year we pay more and get less. This is not the bill of goods the sold us when they built this. Poor management.
