Potential for Periodic Adjustment to Closing Time
The Pine Grove Transfer Station (PGTS) operates under a State of California Solid Waste Facility Permit which allows a maximum of 99 tons taken into the facility per day, and 125 vehicles per day.
The PGTS occasionally reaches its permitted daily tonnage and/or daily maximum vehicle count. When PGTS reaches its current daily allowable tonnage or vehicle count we will be required to close the gate for the remainder of that day and re-open for business the next morning. All vehicles coming to the facility will be turned away.
The PGTS is open Tuesday through Saturday, 9 am - 4 pm. We close from 12 pm - 1 pm daily. We estimate that the maximum daily tonnage or vehicle count will not be reached before late afternoon, and generally never on Saturday. However, any customers arriving after the maximum tonnage or vehicle count is reached will be directed to the Buena Vista facility in Ione or return to the PGTS at a later date. Therefore it may be helpful to arrange your visit to PGTS during non-peak hours. Non-peak hours are typically Wednesday, Thursday and Friday during the morning hours.
