The Clifton Park transfer station, located at 217 Vischer Ferry Road in Rexford, will be open for extended hours, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., through Monday, Dec. 22.
All town residents are invited to bring their tree debris from the ice storm to be disposed of at the transfer station during these hours.
Tree limbs brought to the transfer station must have a diameter of no more than 8 inches. A permit for the transfer station is not required to dispose of tree debris as a result of the ice storm.
The extended transfer station hours have been made available for any town residents that wish to dispose of the brush from their yards at the transfer station. These extended hours do not affect the ongoing curbside clean up of tree debris throughout the town. Highway Department employees are clearing tree debris that is placed along the curb in front of properties, according to Clifton Park Town Supervisor Phil Barrett.
Although a permit is not required for brush disposal, town residents wishing to purchase a transfer station permit can do so for an annual fee of $60. For permit holders, the transfer station accepts recyclable materials, common household trash, flashlight and car batteries, used antifreeze in a non-reusable container, used motor oil and oil filters, fireplace ashes and demolition/construction materials.
