Did you know the new improved Catalina Transfer Station is open to the public?

Yes - It is now open to all public residents and businesses.

Originally ran by Pima County, Tucson Recycling & Waste Services was awarded the responsibility of handling the transfer station.

For the convenience of all -Most recyclables are sorted in designated bins at no charge, provided it is sorted correctly. The hope is to make this efficient and environmentally friendly, where it won’t need to be subsidized, yes this means no charge to recycle, if done correctly.

Hours of operation 7:30 a.m.  to 3 p.m. Monday through Saturday and only a short 10-minute drive away from the Tangerine landfill, which has been permanently closed.

“The 4th Avenue Merchants Association has used Tucson Recycling & Waste Services for more than eight years. We needed a professional, reputable, reliable and honest company to provide the necessary waste services for the bi-annual 4th Avenue Street Fair. The logistics are very complex and involve equipment placement in tight urban and neighborhood settings. Twelve 40-cubic-yard roll-offs and 118 port-o-lets must be in place and ready to go in a matter of hours.

The TRWS team is constantly coming up with innovative ideas to do a better job - even helping us set up a much-needed recycling program. This is the company for events - big or small. Tucson Recycling & Waste is all about quality service. They have consistently delivered and we appreciate it.”

- John Sedwick - Executive Director, 4th Avenue Merchants Association
