Disposal Notice - Project Update Smith Gap Tipper Parts Replacement & Repairs

Phase 2 of parts replacement and repairs to complete overhaul of the Smith Gap Landfill Rotary Car Dumper (Tipper) have been scheduled for the week beginning January 13, 2020. 

The Hollins Rd Tinker Creek Transfer Station will be closed to Commercial & Municipal waste disposal until further notice starting Monday January 13th. Traffic is being diverted to the Salem Transfer Station located at 1271 Indiana St. 

Provided all repairs go as planned, RVRA anticipates disposal operations may return to normal by Monday January 20th. However, it is possible for repairs to take longer. 

RVRA will continue to accept Wood Waste for grinding from all haulers at the Tinker Creek Transfer Station location, as well as Residential Homeowner Waste.

Surcharge fees (if applicable) will be waived at the Salem Transfer Station location until disposal operations return to normal. Our website will also be updated when diverted traffic to Salem can return to the Tinker Creek Transfer Station location. 

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact our offices.
