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

  • 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.
