Transfer Station


Tarp Information (PDF)

Visit the Garland Transfer Station, where you can dispose of non-hazardous solid waste in a car or pickup truck.

Please note all box trucks, trailers, flatbed trucks, and similar vehicles must haul trash to the C.M. Hinton Jr. Regional Landfill located at 3175 Elm Grove Road in Rowlett.

Tarp Information
Your load should be covered and secured from the beginning of your trip. An improperly secured load will result in a $20 fine and the driver will be required to purchase a tarp for a fee of $10. While the transfer station and landfill will sell tarps on site, putting on a tarp in the parking lot defeats the purpose of taking proper precautions before transporting your waste. 

City of Garland Code of Ordinances, Chapter 52, Article III, Sec. 52.30(D) specifies that “all vehicles hauling solid wastes to the transfer station or landfill must have a suitable cover placed over the load to prevent trash from blowing or falling from the vehicle….” Tarping rules are also covered under the State Transportation Code, Title 7, Chapter 725,Sec.725.021(c).
