Transfer Station Information

Transfer Station Stickers


  • The Transfer Station Sticker is only valid for the vehicle it was issued
  • Stickers must be permanently attached to the vehicle rear window in such a way as to be easily visible to the attendant. Stickers may not be taped to the window or laminated and kept in the vehicle. If you need to transfer the sticker to a different vehicle, you must remove the sticker from the old vehicle and bring it and your new registration to the Treasurer's Office for a replacement sticker.
The attendant may stop a vehicle any time to confirm that the registration on the
sticker matches the registration on the vehicle.
