County Offices will be CLOSED 12-26-2022 


In May 2021 we changed the days the Stratton Transfer Site was open. This was changed due to a downward trend of usage at the site. Unfortunately, this hasn’t helped/increased usage. Due to this we regret to inform you that on Feb 1st, 2023, after many years of service the Stratton Transfer Site will be closing its gates for good. We appreciate everyone in the Stratton area that has used the site in the past and would like to remind everyone that the main landfill in Burlington is open 6 days a week. The Seibert Transfer Site will remain open on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays and the Flagler Transfer Site will remain open on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. If you have any questions, please contact us at 719-346-8198.
