Recycling Center

The JFK Transfer Station is open from 11:00 to 4:00 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays (and Wednesdays during the months of June, July and August) for the convenience of Highland residents. It is located at 9360 S. County Road S (next to the Highland Town Hall). The JFK Transfer Station will accept recyclable materials and bagged household trash but cannot accept large items or hazardous waste. The Highland Transfer Station is for routine residential use only and is not intended for commercial or construction waste.

Recyclables: Please separate loose metal, glass and plastic containers from flattened cardboard (no plastic bags or Styrofoam) and place in the marked containers on the left as you enter the Recycling Center.  Please help us minimize cost and flatten plastic, metal and cardboard containers as the recycle pick-up cost is based on volume.


Recycle Materials

Not Trash



Household Trash: Place all small non-recyclable items in closed trash bags but no hazardous waste or large items. Place trash bags in the open container on the right as you enter. Please compact your trash as best as you can because our trash pick-up cost is based on volume.

Large Items and Hazardous waste: The Highland Transfer Station is intended for the convenience of Highland residents and cannot accept commercial waste, large un-bagged items or hazardous waste. For information on these items please refer to the Douglas County Recycling website.
