Transfer station shuts down in Owasco after losing money

The Owasco Recycling Center has shut down.

It was reported by the Auburn Citizen late last week that the transfer station would close due to financial issues.

Casella Waste Systems had previously run the station before its closure.

It first became public knowledge in August that the station was losing money.

Officials say it’s cheaper for residents to pay for curbside pickup than keep the station open for drop-off.
