WHAT IS A TRANSFER STATION?
A waste transfer station is an enclosed facility where waste is unloaded from collection vehicles and briefly held before it is reloaded onto larger vehicles for shipment to landfills or other disposal facilities. Recyclable items are delivered and processed before being transferred to various third parties for recycling.
How does the Transfer Station operate?
Upon arrival vehicles first proceed to the scale house where they pass through radiation monitoring equipment onto the scales and are weighed by the weigh master. All vehicles then proceed to the large Transfer building where drivers are directed to one of 3 unloading positions to deposit the waste on the concrete floor in the designated areas. Our equipment operator will help with the unloading process to those who need it.
After unloading, customers return to the scales to weigh out and pay for there transaction by cash, check or credit card.
Breezewood Transfers staff operates equipment to push the waste from the tipping floor down through an opening into top-loading transfer trailers parked in a loading tunnel beneath. The loading tunnel has a floor flush mounted scale where each transfer trailer is positioned for loading.
