Tip Near Me 📜🗑️: Did you know that Australia is the 6th largest country by area? But oddly enough, it is not included in the top 10 most populous countries in the world. What does this mean? Well, it means that we have a very low population density in our country. In layman’s terms, that means we have a few amounts of people in the area. That also means we can utilise much of the land here to our advantage. And one establishment that would prove beneficial to build would be a waste transfer station – or tip. Let me discuss further details with you.

 

One of the most common questions is – “are we open today” – or “can I dump stuff at your yard?”.

 

At Waster – we actually do not operate facilities at all – just arrange and perform waste and recycling collections.

 

So – in this longer resource – we want to provide a listing of waste transfer stations or tips – that we can recommend or suggest when you are looking for a tip near me in google.

Where Are The Rubbish Tips Near Me?

Before you go on and type in the search engine “garbage tip near me”, you must first know what it is all about. As such, I will discuss with you waste transfer stations.

 

What Are Transfer Stations?

Basically, a waste transfer station is a facility wherein municipal solid waste is stored for a while before processing. The waste stored there either goes to a landfill, waste-to-energy facility, or a recycling facility, depending on the waste. Activities involved at the transfer station involves the trucks unloading their collected waste, checking waste before being transported again and removal of unsuitable materials, compaction, and then loading them onto vehicle wherein they are sent to their final location, still depending on the waste.

 

Important Details To Note

Landfill – a place where waste is taken to be disposed of. One of the most common forms of waste disposal dating back to old times. Unlike the old times, though, waste is carefully treated here to avoid contamination and the likes. See our blog on landfills in Australia

 

Waste-To-Energy Facility – a place where after it goes through the waste transfer station; they take the waste and combust them, which then turns them into electricity. Also called trash-to-energy, municipal waste incineration,  energy recovery, or resource recovery plant. See our blog on waste incineration in Australia.

 

Recycling Facility – a place that receives, stores, and processes already-sorted general recyclable waste. These types of facilities turn recyclable waste into materials like paper, containers, or cardboard.

 

How Are Transfer Tips Near Me Beneficial?

Having transfer tips – or points – near you are will benefit your respective communities. That is because these provide your city with cost-effective waste transportation. Naturally, if you transfer waste in larger vehicles like trucks or trains, you automatically cut costs in terms of transportation. Other benefits also include:

 

  • Less pollution generated
  • Makes it easier for citizens to drop off their waste
  • Lowers road traffic
  • Improves the safety of the transportation of waste
  • Gives an opportunity to check the rubbish first; it removes the possibility of toxic waste being transported and recovers all the recyclable materials

Further Details On The Operations Of Transfer Stations

Now, one question some of you might be asking:

“What are the processes of refuse tips near me?”

Day by day, a transfer station operation includes (as stated by thebalancesmallbusinessRick LeBlanc):

 

  • Arrivals and scale – the large vehicle – which carries the waste – goes to the scale house. In here, waste loads are weighed, and fees are determined if applicable. Take note that if a transfer station allows the public to also drop off solid waste, there may be a separate queue and scale for this purpose.
  • Tipping, processing, and reloading – The large vehicles then unload the trash at the main transfer building. Solid waste can either be dropped into the ground, into a pit or also onto another vehicle immediately. After that, the employees check the waste for any anomalies and deal with them. Compactors are also utilised in some transfer station points to compact waste in order for vehicles to load more waste.
  • Facility – The facility typically includes a scale location and an enclosed building where the weighing and transportation process take place. The property requires adequate space to facilitate the queuing of vehicles at the scale and the main building. Also, there should be space to accommodate the parking of outbound transfer trailers. The additional property will be required for staging unacceptable garbage. Some waste transfer stations provide space for the public to drop off green waste or other approved recyclables.
  • Basic equipment: Aside from scales, transfer stations typically use equipment such as front-end loaders, cranes, conveyors, walking floors, and compactors. See our blog on compaction of solid waste.
  • Staffing: Waste transfer stations require customer service and scale house operators, traffic controllers, equipment operators, maintenance mechanics, as well as other technical and management staff.
