Advanced Disposal Opens Mobile Transfer Station in Alabama

Advanced Disposal Services Inc. has opened a $1.5 million mobile transfer station in Mobile, Ala.

The facility will serve Mobile County and the surrounding Gulf Coast area. It will be available for county residents other third-party haulers in Mobile and neighboring counties, as well as municipal governments in the surrounding areas, for waste disposal.

The facility will provide an efficient means of disposal for businesses and other waste service providers, the Jacksonville, Fla.-based company said in a news release.  Waste collected at the transfer station will be disposed of at Turkey Trot Landfill, which Advanced Disposal owns and operates and is located in south Washington County.

The station also adds five jobs.

 “Our Mobile Transfer Station is designed with the customer in mind for more efficient operations and thus a cleaner, safer option for everyone’s disposal needs,” said Dave Lavender, Advanced Disposal regional vice president. “We are proud of our brand new facility, which became a reality largely due to Advanced Disposal’s strong partnership with Mobile County.”
