What is a waste transfer station?



  1. 0 Votes

    A waste transfer station is a sort of check point between a local waste disposal facility and a final dumping ground (landfill or other waste disposal facility).  At waste transfer stations, waste from several surrounding municipalities is unloaded from small, local collection trucks and then reloaded onto larger transport trucks, and these larger trucks deliver the waste to its final resting place.  The purpose of waste transfer stations is to improve the efficiency and reduce the cost of transporting solid waste by consolidating waste from multiple communities into one large load.  For this reason, transfer stations often compact the material they receive in order to fit as much as possible on a single truck.
