Overnight Fire Closes Killeen Transfer Station
If you were planning on dumping some solid or heavy trash in Killeen, you're going to have to hold what you got for now.
The City of Killeen is informing residents that the Killeen Transfer Station which is the central receiving and transfer point for solid waste in the city will be CLOSED to the public indefinitely after an overnight fire.
The city went on to say that an inspection is underway to determine the extent of damage. They did not release any further details about the fire but the facility will remain closed until it is deemed safe for public use.
In the meantime, residents that may need to dispose of bulk trash including furniture, building materials and some appliances, can place them curbside. A collection fee of $21 for up to three cubic yards (3’ x 3’ x 9’) and $7.50 per additional cubic yard (1’ x 1’ x 3’) will be charged.
Regular residential and commercial collection schedules are not affected. Drop-off recycling services remain available at the Killeen Recycling Center located at 111 E. Avenue F and at recycling trailers located at 6520 Clear Creek Road and at 3201 S. WS Young Drive.
