Who We Are
SMTS was acquired along with Chicago Grade Landfill by Allos Environmental in January 2018.
SMTS was constructed in 2000 to provide services to the southern communities and companies of San Luis Obispo County.
The Santa Maria Transfer Station is a fully permitted 500-ton per day (maximum) facility that accepts non-hazardous solid waste
Transfer Station Facts
The facility serves the waste disposal needs of the Santa Maria Valley as well as Southern San Luis Obispo County.
Our customer base includes franchised refuse haulers offering curbside service to local municipalities, local contractors with self-hauled waste, roll-off construction/demolition haulers, agriculture and farm wastes, as well as the general public.
Waste is deposited by our customers onto a concrete floor, then reloaded by our staff into large trailers for transport to our landfill.
This facility floor sorts metals, wood and greenwaste utilizing a CAT 320CL Excavator. Metals are hauled to market while greenwaste and wood are shipped off-site for composting.
Only non-hazardous municipal solid wastes are accepted at the Santa Maria Transfer Station. This includes: residential, commercial, industrial, and self-hauled wastes.
No wastes designated, special, medical, or hazardous wastes will be accepted.
A Hazardous Waste Load Check Program is in place to enforce this policy.
Allos will implement the same IT systems at SMTS that are going into place at Chicago Grade Landfill including the waste approval and tracking components.
Allos will investigate every option to improve traffic flow and operational efficiency to enhance our customer experience at SMTS.
