Transfer Station and Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) Services

Geosyntec's professionals have evaluated and designed numerous solid waste transfer stations for our clients.

This work has required us to evaluate sites, provide layouts, perform environmental assessment studies, prepare permit applications, and construction documents. Geosyntec projects have included: (i) retrofit design for an existing 3,000 ton/day transfer station in Annapolis Junction, Maryland to incorporate automated material recovery equipment and design; and (ii) permitting, including county and Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) permits for a citizen's drop off facility in King George County, Virginia. Geosyntec also has extensive experience in providing construction management (CM) and construction quality assurance (CQA) services for transfer stations and civil infrastructure including resident project representative services and minimizing and managing dispute resolution on behalf of our clients.

Additionally, Geosyntec staff have more than 30 years of experience in the design, technical and operational aspects of the solid waste management industry. Our transfer station improvement experience includes identifying design and operational failures in poorly performing transfer station facilities, reviewing repair alternatives, preparing work scope and budget, and evaluating post-repair success. In cases of substandard operating procedures, we can identify equipment and training deficiencies and prepare operating plans to address environmental compliance or safety hazards.
