Changes Coming in 2021 to the Town of Rome Transfer Site


TRANSFER SITE UPDATE.  The Town has a couple update items in regards to the changes at the Transfer Site.  Starting today (1/6/2021) all tags will be checked and verified for entry. 


If you would like your Transfer Site tag checked and verified ahead of time, the Director of Public Works will be using the shed in the Town Hall parking lot from 8 AM to noon every Thursday in January, the 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th to check and verify tags to expedite entry into the Transfer Site.  Transfer Site tags could also be issued or updated during these hours.  Tags can still be checked and verified at the site, but we wanted to offer an additional opportunity for those interested in completing ahead of time.


The Apache Avenue entrance will continue to be used.  We will post an update when the entry from Roman’s Way will begin, plus there will be signage to direct to Roman’s Way once being used.  This will likely be on or around February 3rd. 


Thank you!
