Construction & Demolition Debris
The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality requires the Astoria Transfer Station to screen for and prevent the acceptance of asbestos. To meet this standard, Recology may require an asbestos survey from an accredited inspector or laboratory testing indicating the material doesn’t contain asbestos from loads containing construction, remodeling, or demolition debris. Any items containing asbestos cannot be accepted.

Loads may be rejected if they do not comply:
