Tillamook County has assumed operations of the Manzanita Transfer Station. We are still in the process of acquiring equipment and hiring employees, and some additional adjustments will be made in operational logistics, but we are pleased to announce that the site will reopen to the public at 10:00 am on Friday, January 25, 2019.
Until we have completed all hiring, operating hours will be limited to: Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, hours- 10:00 am – 4:00 pm.
