This coming January, a municipal transfer station with on-site organics management (aka composting!), called the Geneva Resource Recovery Park, is coming to Geneva, NY! This center is brought to you by Closed Loop Systems, a local company that designs, builds, operates, and maintains customized resource recovery facilities for municipal, agricultural, industrial, and institutional clients. Their mission is to replenish global topsoil using waste! They also engage in advocacy work and education around healthy soil and the importance of the soil food web.
Transfer stations are places where local waste collection vehicles will deposit their waste prior to loading into larger vehicles which take them to another waste processing center or their final destination. Why a transfer station? According to the EPA, “Waste transfer stations make solid waste collection more efficient and reduce overall transportation costs, air emissions, energy use, truck traffic, and road wear and tear.”
