Useful Links

The Granite County Solid Waste District operates two container facilities, one located near Philipsburg and one near Drummond.  The district subcontracts the hauling and disposal of the waste deposited at these facilities.

Both sites have a three bay z-wall design. The Philipsburg site was constructed in 1993, and the Drummond site was constructed late in 1997.

Both the Drummond and Philipsburg sites are licensed as Class III Burn sites; each site has a burn pile for burning tree limbs and non-treated wood wastes(do not put painted boards, plywood, particle board, drywall or grass clippings in the burn piles).

The Drummond site is also licensed as a Class II Composting Operation (grass clippings and leaves are accepted for composting only at the Drummond Composting site).

We ask that good judgment and common sense be used by all persons who wish to utilize the Transfer Station services. Note: We are no longer baling cardboard.

Please call before bringing trailer loads.

No Construction Loads after 3:45p.m. in Philipsburg and after 5:45p.m. in Drummond
