No Construction and Demolition Debris will be accepted at the Gardiner Transfer Station Beginning June 1
The Town Board has determined that it is impossible to accurately calculate the weight, volume and subsequent price of construction and demolition debris brought to the Gardiner Transfer Station. Therefore, the Gardiner Transfer Station will no longer accept Construction & Demolition material beginning June 1. Homeowners will be permitted one large contractor bag or one garbage can with debris per trip for $6.00 per bag or can. No loose debris will be accepted. Following the trend of other towns in similar positions, residents will be encouraged to bring construction material to UCRRA's New Paltz depot where they are better equipped to receive this material and where better prices are offered. Commercial C&D should be brought to UCRRA on Clearwater Road in New Paltz located near the ball field, BMX track, and the New Paltz Transfer Station
