Transfer Station

The Department of Public Works manages the City of Summit Transfer Station, where solid wastes and recyclables are collected and marketed, and where leaves are composted.


The Transfer Station is open every week:
  • Tuesday - Friday, 7:30 AM - 3:45 PM
  • Saturday, 7:30 AM - 4:45 PM
  • CLOSED: Sundays, Mondays and Holidays


Disposal area regulations (PDF) ensure residents can use the facilities efficiently. The disposal area flyer (PDF) includes a map and frequently asked questions. Use of the area is free to all residents of the City; contractors must pay a per ton fee to dispose of trash, leaves and branches, and other materials.

Residents must obtain a resident disposal/parking permit through the online permit system from the Parking Services Agency to use the Transfer System. Each permit costs $10 per vehicle or $5 if resident is 62 years of age or older. Please contact the Parking Services Agency with any questions at 908-522-5100 or
