Central Transfer Station is one of three transfer stations in Clark County. While their mission is to provide reliable and environmentally conscious waste and recycling services for county residents and businesses, Central Transfer has also adopted many green practices to ensure a safe and sustainable environment for their employees and customers.
Certified as a Clark County Green Business in 2016, the transfer station has continued to find ways to reduce its waste, improve energy efficiency, and establish strong community connections. They've installed LED lighting on the exterior of their building and are looking to incorporate more natural lighting. Central Transfer also partners with Gemtext, a local textile recycling company to collect small household items and clothes for reuse. Safety is of utmost importance, especially at a transfer station, and Central does a great job educating their staff on proper hazardous waste handling practices and providing safety data sheets that are visible and easily accessible for employees.
