Hawthorne Street Transfer Station


Customers are asked to respect social distancing (remain six feet apart from other customers and employees), and to wear face masks at all times while on site.


Tarp Your Load

Uncovered trucks and trailers are a large source of litter and debris along Humboldt roadways. Please do your part to secure and cover your load.

Reduce Your Load By Recycling First

HWMA offers a "One-Stop Service" to make it convenient for you to reduce, recycle and properly dispose of materials before waste is deposited into the landfill. Seperate your materials before you visit, and take all recyclable materials to the Eureka Recycling Center you may also reduce your costs.

Treated Wood Waste

New Regulations for disposing of Treated Wood Waste. 

Effective Jan. 1, 2021, the California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) (https://dtsc.ca.gov/toxics-in-products/treated-wood-waste/) will no longer allow the landfill disposal of treated wood waste (TWW). This means that transfer stations and rural container drop-off sites can no longer accept TWW for disposal after Dec. 31. 

Residential customers may bring up to 125 pounds per day. Sections must be less than 3 feet in length with nails, staples, screws and other fasteners removed whenever possible to do so. 

Small businesses are encouraged to call HWMA at 707-441-2005 for information on volume restrictions and costs.
