The North Kent Recycling & Waste Center is designed to transfer waste to a solid waste landfill. The waste is placed on a concrete floor, compacted and then loaded into a transfer trailer and transported to a solid waste landfill.

The transfer station provides a convenient means for self-haul disposal for residents and commercial haulers in the northern half of Kent County. The proximity of this facility helps keep refuse costs lower for residents in the rural areas by keeping haulers’ transportation costs lower.

2021 Disposal Fees

Terms of payment: cash, check, or credit card. Additional 3% convenience fee added when using a credit card. Visa, MasterCard, and Discover only.
