Transfer Station

A transfer station is a facility where municipal solid waste is gathered before it is shipped to a landfill. The station provides an affordable, environmentally sound way to handle municipal solid waste collected from Sacramento County.

Rather than having dozens of collection trucks making longer trips to the landfill, these collection vehicles can dump their loads at SRT where the trash is consolidated and transferred to larger, long-distance trucks for delivery to the landfill.

Our long-distance transfer trucks are powered by natural gas and can carry up to 20 tons of MSW per trip as compared to a collection truck which can carry at most 4 tons.

SRT receives trash from numerous jurisdictions throughout Sacramento County and is open to the public six days a week. Click here to find current disposal rates.
