Separation of Items

With the continued rapid growth of Kootenai County and an increase in the amount of material being disposed, it is important that everyone separate the materials they wish to discard. The transfer stations are set up to allow for ease of disposal for separated materials.  Separation is currently done on a voluntary basis.
