New Transfer Station coming to the Ivy Materials Utilization Center
The Rivanna Solid Waste Authority (RSWA) and Albemarle County are pleased to announce that a new transfer station will be constructed on a parcel of land at the existing Ivy Materials Utilization Center (MUC) site. The new transfer station will be designed to meet all current regulatory requirements for solid waste handling while creating a more user-friendly experience by reducing wait times, improving traffic flow through the site, alleviating traffic congestion on household hazardous waste amnesty days, and providing room to streamline enhanced recycling at a future date. The new facility will retain existing services, including “tag-a-bag” household waste disposal, mulching, and special collections.
