Transfer Station Cards

Transfer Station Cards were not mailed out with your tax bill this year. Transfer Station Cards are available for pick-up at the Town Office or at the Transfer Station Site.

Our Transfer Station Attendant is Martin Filmore

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are asking that visits to the Transfer Station be limited to essential waste.

The Town of Kearney has partnered with Diabetes Canada, and now offers donation bins at both Transfer Station sites. Check out Diabetes Canada’s website for information on what we can accept!
