Transfer Station (and Animal Shelter)

Table Of Contents:

Transfer Station Site Number 845-679-0514


Closed when severe winter storm and unsafe travel conditions exist.  To check, call 845-246-2800 extension 16. The number for the Animal Shelter is 845-679-0339.


Beginning on January 1, 2016, the Town of Saugerties Transfer Station's days of operation will be changing.  The new schedule will be:

  • OPEN - Tuesday and Saturday, 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
  • CLOSED - Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Holidays


Small quantities of homeowner generated construction and demolotion (C & D) waste will still be accepted.  Larger amounts will no longer be accepted IE: pick-up trucks and larger.  No C & D waste will be accepted from commercial C & D waste generated on a contractor/homeowner project.

No toxic materials can be accepted.


Use of the Saugerties Transfer Station requires purchasing a permit, plus applicable fees (see next section), depending upon what is being brought to the Transfer Station for disposal.  Buying a permit involves visiting the Transfer Station during the listed hours (Tuesday and Saturday, 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.) and carrying out the transaction there.




Note: As of April 7, 2015, the Town of Saugerties Transfer Station will no longer be accepting  brush from residents due to the expense involved in processing the  brush.  Brush can be brought to Rothe Lumber Corp.- Recycling Division, 1451 Rt. 212 (near the transfer station).  Hours of operation: Mon. - Fri. 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. & Sat. 8 a.m. to Noon.  845-246-5202.  Rothe's recycling division is a Green Solid Waste Processing Facility, registered with NYSDEC.  The cost is very similar to what the Transfer Station had been charging.


Any other businesses in the Town of Saugerties accepting and processing cut tree limbs and brush should e-mail twood@saugerties.ny.us at the Supervisor's office with pertinent information to be added to this list of locations where Saugerties citizens can bring their cut tree limbs and brush to be recycled.  


Note: downloadable and printable fee schedule PDF for 2016 can be found below under the "Documents" heading.
