The Bovina Transfer Station has been having a problem with garbage being dropped off when the station is closed. This is considered littering and carries a minimum fine of $1,500.00. Please note that the Transfer Station is open every Saturday from 8:00 AM until 12:30 PM year-round and on Wednesday's from 1:00 PM until 4:00 PM from May through September. If you cannot get to the Station during the hours of operation, please make other arrangements for your garbage disposal.

In an effort to save money, the Town Board has made the decision to accept tires at the Transfer Station on "TIRE DAYS" only. There will be two "TIRE DAYS" a year, one in the spring and one in the fall. Check the main page of the website dates. There will be a limit of eight tires per person per Tire Day. Tires must be off the rim and not exceed 24-inches in diameter.
