Waste Management will accept sealed containers at the station, load them onto barges and ship them to Elizabeth, N.J.
Post-collections facilities include transfer stations, recycling centers and materials recovery facilities (MRFs).
A new transfer station may help alleviate the problem of small commercial haulers taking part in illegal dumping activities in Baltimore.
The first step in plotting the land for the transfer station was to plan a photo flight mission based on the map of the study area provided in the RFP.
The waste transfer station would save the city time and money by cutting down on trips to the Cerro Colorado Landfill, fuel, maintenance and emissions.
From January 2016 to August 2016, contamination rates decreased between 21.4 percent and 40.6 percent in various neighborhoods in the Elgin area.
The new rate, which became effective Jan. 1, will fund more recycling options at transfer stations.
