Waste Transfer Stations are championed for their vital role in cost-effective waste management. From reducing transport costs to ensuring maximum amounts are recycled, there are plenty of benefits to stations.
One of the biggest benefits of Waste Transfer Stations is that they reduce transport times and therefore costs. As there are many stations through the country, waste vehicles can tip at a station close to their base or customer area instead of transporting waste to larger, and often further afield, disposal sites. Not only do companies spend less on fuel, but their fleet can complete tips faster and consequently complete more runs. There is notable environmental benefit too, due to reduced reliance on air or rail freight and long-distance road travel.
As an in-between and opportunity to sort and screen waste before landfill, Waste Transfer Stations are critical in increasing the amount of waste recycled. Additionally, the safety of workers benefits from the careful sorting of materials and the removal of hazardous waste.
Waste Transfer Stations may also be accessible to the public, allowing citizens to manage and recycle their waste appropriately. This can be hugely beneficial to local waste collection services.
