We consider the stirring process in the interval $\Lambda_N:=[-N,N]$ of $\mathbb Z$ with  births and deaths taking place in the intervals $I_+:=(N-K,N]$, and respectively $I_-:=[-N,-N+K)$, $1 \le K <N$. We prove bounds on the truncated moments uniform in $N$ which yield strong factorization properties.
