Waste transfer stations are vital to industrial waste management. After waste collection, waste materials are brought to facilities to be consolidated before being managed and disposed of at a landfill or waste-to-energy building.
The storage of commercial waste helps with pollution control. Storing waste reduces transportation costs and ensures as much solid waste as possible is recycled. Keep reading to learn the benefits of waste storage and the dangers of poor waste disposal.
The waste transfer station is the best way to facilitate solid waste management and disposal. Waste streams converge on the station, providing a space for waste collection vehicles and containers to unload and for the many types of waste they carry to be sorted.
The facilities improve the industrial process by providing a midpoint for waste management. Hazardous waste can be sorted and handled properly, which prevents environmental damage. Poor waste management is dangerous for human health; when unsafe waste is allowed to mix with other waste materials, both the people who handle the substances and the community shoulder the consequences.
Waste transfer stations are a robust environment. They need large plots of land to meet the space requirements of the commercial vehicles, tipping areas, and equipment like loaders, cranes, and compactors. Building a waste transfer solution is a complicated but critical process.
A solid waste transfer solution is critical for the oil and gas, mining, and waste and recycling industries. While there are many ways to build a waste transfer station, a fabric waste storage solution is your best option. Fabric industrial waste disposal sites are energy efficient and versatile. Whether you operate on an oilfield or mining site, fabric buildings are a cost-effective and long-lasting solution for the storage of commercial waste.
Fabric waste storage structures are more resistant to corrosion than traditional steel or wood buildings. The fabric can handle snow, wind, rain, and other weather conditions. Fabric structures are also more eco-friendly. Because the roofing material is translucent, it receives natural light, meaning you don’t need to waste energy on lighting solutions. Natural light also helps reduce humidity, bacteria, and mold.
When you practice solid waste management, you need space. Fabric waste transfer solutions are clear span and well-ventilated. These structures are built high and don’t feature support columns, so you can use every inch of space available. Waste collection trucks and other machinery have plenty of room to maneuver.
Fabric waste transfer solutions can be built on any surface, using a wide variety of foundation materials. Here are a few options:
- Screw piles and earth anchors
- Concrete piles
- Wooden posts
- Sea-can containers
- Concrete slab/asphalt
