The Dryden Transfer Station is set to reopen Thursday after it closed Wednesday afternoon because of an equipment problem.

The county does not have reopening time scheduled, but is providing updates on its Public Works Facebook page.

Meanwhile, the drop-off fee at the Transfer Station was increased this week from $25 to $30 for 420 lbs. or less.

The county says the fee hike is being caused by an increase in the cost of hauling and disposing of garbage at the Greater Wenatchee Landfill in East Wenatchee.

In addition, the municipal solid waste fee will increase to $125 per ton.

The Dryden Transfer Station is located in the 9000 block of U.S. Highway 2 in Dryden.

The station usually takes yard waste and other solid waste, among other things. It's also a drop-off site for metal and recycling.

The station is open 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
