Creating an Account

Transfer station patrons have the option to set up an account via phone, create an account online or pay cash/credit/debit on-site.

Creating an account allows you to add funds prior to your visit to the transfer station, reducing your wait time when you arrive. For example, if you add $20.00 at a time (just like purchasing a punch card), we will deduct the necessary removal fee from your credit balance, and you will be on your way.

As of March 1, 2023, the Claremont Transfer Station will no longer be accepting punch cards. Instead, you may purchase stickers that are to be placed on each bag. These stickers can be purchased at the Transfer Station.

If you choose to utilize our online services, you will have the ability to:
• see your credit balance
• add funds to your account quickly and easily
• update your email address for receipts
• send us a message 

**DISCLAIMER** DeCamp Waste Services reserves the right to charge a bank fee of $25.00 for any returned payments through the online portal.

Batteries

See below for the different types of batteries and their proper disposal

When in doubt, always see the attendant

Alkaline

Alkaline batteries (including zinc carbon and zinc chloride batteries) are the standard AA, C and D cells, and 9-volts used to power products like flashlights, remote controls and small electronic devices.  Alkaline batteries on the market now are not hazardous and can be disposed of as solid waste.

Alkaline batteries may be placed in with your regular household trash

Button Cell 

Button cell batteries are the small batteries mostly used in hearing aids, calculators and watches. They may contain mercury, a toxic heavy metal, making it illegal to dispose of them in the trash. Handle them as a universal waste, and keep them separate from non-mercury batteries. Cover the battery contacts with tape, or place batteries in plastic bags, individually.  Did you know that damaging a button cell battery can cause a fire?  That's why proper disposal is so important.

Button cell batteries should be brought to the attendant

Lead Acid

Lead-acid batteries include those used in vehicles, motorcycles, boats and emergency lighting.

Automotive batteries should be brought to Area K,
all others see the attendant

Rechargeable

Rechargeable batteries are nickel-cadmium (Ni- Cd), lithium ion (Li-ion), nickel metal hydride (Ni-MH) and small, sealed lead-acid (Pb) batteries used to power electronic devices like phones, computers and cameras. These batteries cannot be disposed of as solid waste because they contain cadmium, lithium and lead, which are toxic metals.
