ACES Transfer Station in Pine Grove


ACES Waste Services, Inc.  -  Pine Grove Transfer Station

- Potential for Periodic Adjustment to Closing Time - 

The Pine Grove Transfer Station (PGTS) operates under a State of California Solid Waste Facility Permit which allows a maximum of 99 tons taken into the facility per day and 125 vehicles per day. 

The PGTS occasionally reaches its permitted daily tonnage and/or daily maximum vehicle count.  When PGTS reaches its current daily allowable tonnage or vehicle count we will be required to close the gate for the remainder of that day and re-open for business the next morning.  All vehicles coming to the facility will be turned away. 

The PGTS is open Tuesday through Saturday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.  We close from 12 to 1 p.m. We estimate that the maximum daily tonnage or vehicle count will not be reached before late afternoon, and generally never on Saturday.  However, any customers arriving after the maximum tonnage or vehicle count is reached may go to the Buena Vista facility in Ione or return to the PGTS at a later date.  Therefore, it may be helpful to arrange your visit to PGTS during non-peak hours. Non-peak hours are generally Wednesday, Thursday & Friday.

ACES’ Transfer Station in Pine Grove is located at 19801 Berry Street in Pine Grove.

The Transfer Station is open Tuesday through Saturday from 9 a.m. -12 noon and 1 p.m.- 4 p.m. unless otherwise posted.

See our yearly calendar or contact information for a full Transfer Station Schedule.
