The Miami County Transfer Station manages all solid waste from residents and businesses throughout the county. All waste haulers must bring all solid waste generated in Miami County to the Transfer Station, per flow control regulations allowed by ORC 343.014.
Residents may dispose of solid waste at the Transfer Station, for the current tipping fee, during operating hours.
Please note that the Transfer Station building is currently under construction, and is only open to vehicles with mechanical lift-beds. Residents may be directed to the residential drop-off area to dispose of waste.
- Appliances: Check with your hauler for large trash pickup rates, or bring these items to the Transfer Station. Many of these items can be recycled, so call local scrap yards before throwing them out.
- Christmas Trees: After the holidays, residents can bring in trees for free disposal. You may also check with your municipality or hauler for composting options.
- Electronics: Electronics can be taken to the Transfer Station for recycling for the current tipping fee. Or, take them to Goodwill for free recycling.
- Lancets and syringe needles: Put sharps in a rigid plastic container (like a detergent bottle) with an attached lid. Duct tape the lid and label the container with "Sharps" before placing it in your curbside trash or bringing it to the Transfer Station. Do not put the container in your recycling. You can also dispose of sharps securely through our free sharps drop-offs.
- Latex Paint: Residents may bring up to fifteen gallons of paint for disposal at the Transfer Station; pricing is set at the current tipping fee.
Dry latex paint can be placed in your regular curbside trash. Paint can be dried by leaving the lid off of the container, or by mixing it with kitty litter or sawdust.
- Window glass: Put it in a cardboard box labeled “Broken Glass,” and tape the box closed before putting it out with your garbage or taking it to the Transfer Station. Never place window glass in the recycling container. Do not dispose of window glass in plastic bags.
- Wood waste: The Transfer Station accepts wood waste for the current tipping fee. Remember that all material must be under 8 feet in length and 2 feet in diameter.
Special fees or regulations exist for:
- Animal carcasses: There is no special fee, but an Animal Carcass Certification form must be filled out by the customer.
- Air conditioning units, freezers, refigerators, and dehumidifiers: Air conditioners and dehumidifiers can be taken to the Transfer Station. There is a $10 Freon removal fee along with charges for the weight of the trash. The $10 fee will be applied unless the appliance is tagged with a Freon-removal certification sticker.
- Boats: Boats can be disposed of at the Miami County Transfer Station at the current tipping fee, but the title will need to accompany the boat. The Transfer Station will mail the title to the Ohio Division of Natural Resources' Watercraft Division. All fluids must be removed from the boat.
- Fluorescent light bulbs: Residents may dispose of up to 10 fluorescent light bulbs at the Transfer Station at the current tipping fee.
