We told you recently about the Killeen Transfer Station being forced to close due to an overnight fire recently and now we have news from the City Of Copperas Cove that their transfer station will be closing but it won't be for long.

According to a press release from the city, The Copperas Cove Solid Waste Department will conduct additional maintenance on the Transfer Station crane beginning Thursday, August 27. While the work is expected to only last two partial days, the Transfer Station will be closed to the public.

The station will be closed on Thursday from Noon until 5:00 PM and then again on Friday from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM.

The scheduled maintenance will NOT affect residential or commercial collections. If you were planning on dumping some heavy items Thursday or Friday, might want to hold what you got for a few extra hours.

If you have any questions, call Copperas Cove Solid Waste at (254) 547-4242 or Larry Scott, Solid Waste Director, at lscott@copperascovetx.gov.
