Orcas Recycling Services/ The Exchange rolls out more improvements at “the dump” this week, announcing a significant expansion of the hours the Orcas Transfer Station is open to the public.
“We’ve heard from a lot of people that it would be helpful if the station were open more often, as it was several years ago,” says Pete Moe, ORS executive director. “Our goal is to improve the services here, so we decided to give it a try.”
Beginning Thursday, Oct. 24, the Orcas Transfer Station will be open to the public five days a week, Thursday to Monday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Tuesdays and Wednesdays the station will be closed to non-commercial traffic.
It’s not just the hours that are better – the prices are too: For self-haulers garbage in now $7 per can, down from $12. Recycling is now $2, down from $3.
