Cindy Osburg is the owner of Mid-America Transfer (M&T) located at 3995 FM 1485 just east of Conroe. Mid-American is a trash transfer service facility. Trash companies or individuals can dump their trash at a much lower cost than a landfill. Many times, at a landfill you need to drive up a mountain of trash, back up and unload your trash while standing in garbage. Then drive back down the mountain the mountain of trash. At Mid-America, everything is concrete and covered. After you drive in across the scale you enter the building. There you unload onto a concrete floor. After you finish unloading you exit across another scale. The difference between the two weights determines how much material was dumped. For individuals, they are currently charging $35 a ton, for pick up loads only. They can take almost any type of debris except hazardous waste including paint cans, refrigerators in which the Freon has not been bled off. Tires and batteries are not accepted either. Once the trash is dumped in the building, a front-end loader loads an 18-wheeler trailer which is located in a pit at the back of the building. That truck then hauls the trash to a landfill outside Montgomery County. Currently the facility has extended its hours during the week from 5 a.m. to 6 p.m. They are also open on Saturday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. The facility is on FM 1485, one-mile south of SH 105 East. It is open to the general public and welcomes storm debris. This include mattresses, sofas, carpeting and construction material. For additional information call 936-494-3070.
