One of the major things that set Atlantic Waste above other solid waste companies is the Atlantic Waste Solid Waste Transfer Station. Most haulers must rely on publicly or privately owned landfills as their only means of disposal. These landfills have normal operating hours that the hauler must abide by to dump their collection vehicles. When the landfill closes, the haulers’ collection vehicles cannot get dumped. During holidays, many landfills close or reduce their operating hours, limiting a hauler’s ability to dump their trucks.

What is a transfer station?

Atlantic Waste Services owns and operates its own State permitted transfer station located at its facility in Chatham County. The transfer station is a large building with a concrete floor on which the Atlantic Waste trucks dump their collected volumes of MSW and C&D. The garbage is then loaded into a large 100 cubic yard transfer “tipper” trailers, where it’s then hauled over the road to several public and private landfills. These transfer trailers can carry up to 26 tons, which is much more than a single garbage truck can haul. This transfer station allows Atlantic Waste trucks a cleaner, faster, safer, and more convenient means of dumping their collection vehicle loads. Atlantic Waste can operate and haul trash long after local landfills have closed. If you need emergency or “after hours” collection and disposal, Atlantic Waste is the only hauler in the area that can handle your needs.
