Recycling & Waste Transfer Station

As a resident of Dade County (with a Dade County car plate/tag), a citizen may dispose up to 8 bags of trash/garbage on a daily basis for free at the Dade County Transfer Station located at 888 Sunset Drive, Trenton, Georgia 30752.

Scales for truckloads of garbage/refuse are open until 4 p.m. daily priced by the ton. Also, all citizens are encouraged to bring unlimited amounts of recyclables to the Dade County Recycling Center located at the same address. The Transfer Station and Recycling Center is open: Tuesday through Saturday
8 a.m. until 6 p.m. For additional information on what recycled materials are accepted, you may call 706-657-2776.


  • Slygo Road: from U.S. Hwy 11 toward KOA
  • Slygo Road: from the 3-way stop sign (near Outdoor Wilderness Theater) onto Hales Gap Road.
  • Harris Road
  • Tripp Lane
  • Slygo Road: from 1-59 to U.S. Hwy 299 (as weather allows)

    Also, infrastructure supports are ordered for County Road #6 (aka White Oak Gap) going up Sand Mountain from Hwy. 136 West toward Davis Elementary. This maintenance continues while the road crew is paving on the north end of Dade County. County Executive Ted Rumley hopes to have White Oak Gap back to normal sometime in November.
