Disposal of Railroad ties

6 posts in this topic

The fiberglass boat post reminded me of this..

I've got about a dozen or so RailRoad ties that are half rotted and would like to dispose of them. Last I checked, most garbage places wouldnt take them, and the one that did wanted something like $100 to take them.

Anyone have any other ideas?

if they are in decent enough shape, you could give them away, I use them for fence posts!! it they are too rotten though, you might just have to take them to a landfill.

There's a place in Stillwater called Buberl Recycling & Composting. A co worker of mine took his there a few years back. It cost $5 a tie. Give them a call.

burning them would be illegal if they are true railroad ties that are treated with tar or other material. The reason they are so hard to get rid of is cause they are considered hazerdous.....and oversized. See if your town has a bulk pick up program or a recycling center. Call the county they should be able to tell you where to bring them.

Check on the pricing before you bring them to any land fill.

Had some in the trailer when when i was dumping a load of tore off shingles.Almost caused a shutdown at the land fill.When i went up to the scale to pay the bill they had an extra charge of $200.00 for hazardous waste,there was at the most ten rotten railroad ties in the load.Wasnt trying to do something wrong,i didnt realize at the time that they were hazardous waste.$5.00 a piece to get rid of sounds pretty good.Burl.

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
