The Vancouver South Transfer Station is for commercial and residential customers to dispose of garbage, and to drop off select recyclable materials.
We are making improvements to the Vancouver South Transfer Station from November 2016 until April 2017.
Construction takes place from 7:00 am to 5:30 pm, Monday to Friday, with occasional work on weekends as required.
The bypass lane is closed to all vehicles for the first two months of construction. During this time, all vehicles must exit through the outbound scales – some delays are expected.
Caution: You must enter from the east. Left turns are not permitted by vehicles arriving from the west.
