The Proposed Project

Construction of a solid waste transfer station on SE 25-17-05 W2M. Activities consist of construction layout staking, topsoil stripping, geotextile placement, imported granular fill material for construction of pad, construction of concrete retaining walls, installation of perimeter chain link fencing, placement of 30 cubic yard waste bins, used oil container and used battery storage container. Upon completion of the new transfer station, the existing landfill and white metals, tires, etc. storage areas will be cleaned up and permanently closed and decommissioned.

Approximately 500 linear metres of perimeter chain link fence surrounding the site. New access roadways and 125m x 125m built up gravel pad serving as the transfer station area. Concrete retaining walls for ramp disposal area and separation of non-household waste materials. Used oil storage tank, used battery storage container and 30 cubic yard waste bins will also remain on-site permanently. Any construction waste generated from construction of the new transfer station will be transported to an off-site landfill by
the Contractor.
