Norman Transfer Station Switches Over to New Drive Entrance

Effective on August 19, access to the City of Norman Transfer Station will switch over to the new driveway constructed as part of the facility improvements for the new Household Hazardous Waste Facility. The new driveway is located several hundred feet north of the existing driveway but remains off of Chautauqua Avenue and will provide an expanded, safer drive access to and from the transfer station and the Household Hazardous Waste Facility that is still under construction.

 The City of Norman/Norman Municipal Authority awarded Contract K-2021-10 to the Landmark Construction Group for the construction of a new Household Hazardous Waste Facility and a new Container Maintenance Facility. The new Household Hazardous Waste Facility, along with improvements to the Transfer Station site at 3900 Chautauqua Avenue, has a construction cost of $1,396,000 and will provide a year-round location for residents to dispose of household items and chemicals that are not able to be disposed through normal trash service or the sewer. The Container Maintenance Facility, to be constructed at 3440 S Jenkins, has a construction cost of $931,000 and will provide a safer, more efficient workspace for the rehabilitation of dumpsters used for solid waste which will extend the life of solid waste dumpsters ultimately resulting in reduced operating costs for the Sanitation Division of the Utilities Department.
