Republic Opens Arizona Waste Transfer Station

Republic Services Inc. has opened a transfer station in Chandler, Ariz., to serve the southeast Valley region.

Phoenix-based Republic said the Germann Transfer Station can process more than 420 tons of waste daily and will serve Arizona customers in Apache Junction, Gilbert, Mesa, Phoenix, Pinal County, Queen Creek and Tempe, according to a news release.

The transfer station will cut 4,000 collection truck trips in 2015 to other landfill facilities. The company said it will reduce diesel fuel consumption in collection trucks by about 120,000 gallons this year.

"Waste is inextricably linked to population growth and economic prosperity in any community,” said Alberto Guardado, Republic area president. “We believe the Valley's brightest days are still ahead, and this new facility will support growth in our community for generations to come."

The transfer station also has the capacity to expand in the future.

In Arizona Republic operates at 22 locations, including seven transfer stations and seven landfills, and employs more than 1,200 people.
