The Middle Peninsula Field Office in Middlesex County serves as the base for dispatchers and supervisors for all operations on the Middle Peninsula.

The Compost Facility, located in York County, has an office for the facility supervisor.


Regularly scheduled meetings of the VPPSA Board of Directors include the regular Board meetings, meetings of the Middle Peninsula Transfer System Oversight Committee and the Compost Facility Oversight Committee.  All of these meetings are open to the public.
