*IMPORTANT: The Henderson County Solid Waste facilities operate under a permit issued by NC DEQ. The Transfer Station and Convenience Center are not regional facilities; therefore, we cannot accept waste generated outside of Henderson County. If the waste brought to our facilities was not generated in Henderson County, your load will be refused. This also includes household waste brought to the bag-for-bag program at the Convenience Center.

All solid waste and recyclables being transported shall be encased by a tarpaulin, camper cover, metal cover, rigid cover, plastic or suitable material secured to prevent leakage or blowing of materials from the vehicle. This includes adequate coverage for bagged garbage. Please bag all solid waste. Loose waste results in more litter both on site and the surrounding areas.  You will not be admitted into the Convenience Center or Transfer Station if your solid waste and recycling is not secure.
