Once you throw your trash away, the trash truck picks it up and brings it to the Transfer Station
They dump the trash from their trucks on to the Transfer Station floor.
We then smash and compact the trash so it can be loaded onto tractor trailers to be driven to its forever home, the landfill.
We receive 400 tons of trash per day. That is about 100,000 tons of trash per year.
We send 18 tractor trailers of trash to the landfill each day.
We also collect scrap metal for recycling at the Transfer Station.
The metal is also smashed and compacted, but does not go to a landfill – it goes to a recycling center to be made into new metal.
