The Bozeman Convenience Site is owned by the City of Bozeman and operated by Gallatin Solid Waste Management District. It opened in 2008 for the convenience of non-commercial District residents to dispose of regular household materials in small quantities only. It is not, and was not intended to be, a transfer site as that is not permitted under the operating license. See below for operating hours.
