What is a transfer station?
Local crews bring recyclable and waste materials collected from homes, businesses and construction projects, and each load of material is weighed.
From there, crews are directed to a designated area to empty the materials.
Equipment is used to bulk load materials into a large semi-truck known as a transfer trailer.
Materials brought into the transfer station are transported out each day to their final disposal destination or to be baled and recycled.

The LRS Solution
Doors to the building will stay closed until a truck pulls up. The door will open to allow the truck inside and then close behind the truck, once safely inside. While the truck is unloading, the doors will remain closed allowing the air ventilation system to capture and eliminate potential odors. The doors remain closed throughout the day and will only open for trucks entering and leaving.
