North Central Transfer Station and Landfill

North Central Transfer Station

The North Central Transfer Station (NCTS) is open on the north side of the Polk County Landfill. The NCTS is located at 3131 K-Ville Road, Auburndale, and the hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.  This will replace the “Customer Convenience Center” that has been located at the main entrance.

The NCTS is open to Polk County residents, allowing them to dispose of their waste materials more conveniently. With a dedicated entrance, residents will no longer utilize the same entrance as commercial haulers.
