SWAC Considers Transfer Stations Consolidation

The Montgomery County Solid Waste District is considering closing the North Transfer Facility located at 6589 Old Webster Street in Vandalia.  The Solid Waste Advisory Committee (SWAC) will review and vote on that option at its Wednesday, October 19, 2011 meeting scheduled for 3:30 p.m. in the Commission Chambers on the 10th floor of the County Administration Building, 451 W. Third Street in Dayton.  The meeting is open to the public.

The Solid Waste District represents all 28 jurisdictions within Montgomery County.  An independent study was commissioned by the District to explore options based upon current and future needs.  Changing environmental regulations, new technologies and customer service were considerations included in the study.

70% of the current waste stream is currently processed at the South Transfer Station in Moraine.  The facility has the capacity to process all waste currently produced, plus any additional volume that may be experienced in the future.

Proposed consolidation of the North and South Transfer Stations:

Consolidation of the transfer stations into one location would reduce the operating budget by more than $1 million annually and avoid a needed $8 million capital project at the North Facility.

The Board of County Commissioners will consider SWAC’s recommendation at a later date.
