Western Transfer Station

For non-recyclable waste, the Authority has also taken steps to make sure the public's exposure to environmental liability is controlled. Two transfer stations provide the means to receive, inspect, and aggregate the waste for transport to the Authority's Regional Landfill. At each transfer station, waste is inspected to first ensure that no dangerous or hazardous materials are received. If they are, actions are taken immediately for safe and legal disposal. The inspection also ensures compliance with recycling requirements. Certain industrial waste can also be delivered to the transfer stations.

To ensure compliance with regulations, all industries are inventoried; special waste is profiled, reviewed and approved prior to disposal. Authority staff continuously identifies and visits manufacturers in Oneida and Herkimer Counties.

The Eastern and Western Transfer Stations are owned and operated by the Authority. The facilities receive municipal solid waste, industrial/commercial waste and construction and demolition debris (C&D) from Oneida and Herkimer Counties.

The Authority also designed and constructed a transfer station in the Town of Webb. The Town operates the facility and transports the collected materials. The facility, which opened in June 1994, provides solid waste services for the northern portion of Herkimer County. The facility became a necessity when the Town was required to close its landfill. The transfer station is designed to process approximately 2,500 tons per year of municipal solid waste and recyclables.

The Town delivers waste from the facility to the Authority’s Regional Landfill for disposal. Bulk metals are marketed to local scrap metal dealers.
