Design and Operation of Rural and Regional Transfer Stations
Transfer stations have a key role to play in waste management infrastructure. Transfer stations serve as a link between a solid waste collection program and a waste disposal facility. They play an important role in a community's total waste management system by providing an effective means of consolidating and managing recyclables and waste.
The Handbook for the Design and Operation of Rural and Regional Transfer Stations helps Rural Councils understand the challenges, opportunities and unique issues of rural transfer station operations.
It showcases some of the innovative and pragmatic solutions adopted by rural and regional councils and the experiences of numerous councils in responding to waste management needs.
Practical case studies and advice are provided, as are examples of current and future transfer station designs. This comprehensive guide is broken into three (3) parts for ease of viewing.Handbook for the Design and Operation of Rural and Regional Transfer Stations
