If you are visiting Wellfleet and do not have a valid Wellfleet Transfer Station Sticker there are still ways to get rid of your basic items. (Note: We can only accept waste that was generated within the Town of Wellfleet.)
The Recycling Plaza (Highligted Green on the Entrance Guide) requires no sticker and there is no charge, although you must let the Gate Attendant know upon entering. The Gate Attendant is located in the green scalehouse building as you come up the hill. (Highlighted Yellow on the Entrance Guide)
(See the “Recycling” link for information on our "Dual-Stream" Recycling System).
RECYCLING PLAZA CLOSES AT 3:30 EVERYDAY.
If you do not have a valid Transfer Station Sticker and you have Trash (Garbage) to dispose of, there will be a $5.00 Gate Fee upon entering. (Cash or check ONLY)
Additionally, if you do not have your Trash in Official Purple Wellfleet "Pay As You Throw" (PAYT) bags, there will be a $5.00 charge per bag. (Bags can only be up to 35 gallons)
PAYT bags can be obtained at The Wellfleet Marketplace, Midcape Homecenter (Wellfleet), Stop & Shop (Orleans and Provincetown) and Shaw’s (Orleans).
PAYT bags cannot be purchased at the Transfer Station.
ALL OTHER AREAS OF THE TRANSFER STATION REQUIRE A VALID STICKER TO USE.
