The transfer sites at Dale Road and 30-mile will shut down Friday following a decision by the borough in November to close some sites. The move was said to be a means to improve service.

Originally there were four sites set to close, but after a petition to keep the site at Moose Creek open, the borough announced it will remain operational.

The Midway site at milepost 315. 6 on the Richardson is scheduled to close in August.

When a letter was sent out on November 8, those who use Dale Road transfer site were asked to use West side transfer sites such as Farmers Loop West, Ester, or Chena Pump. Residents who use 30-Mile and Midway were asked to use Salcha, Badger Road, or North Pole. Now that Moose Creek will remain open, that facility will be another option for these residents.
