Consolidation of Transfer Stations to Save Over $1 Million Annually

On Tuesday, January 24, 2012, the Montgomery County Commissioners approved a resolution to close and demolish the Solid Waste North Transfer Facility located at 6589 Old Webster Street in Vandalia.  Operations will be consolidated into one location, the more centrally located South Transfer Station on Encrete Lane in Moraine.    

“Consolidation of the transfer stations into one location will reduce the operating budget by more than $1 million annually and avoid a needed $8 million capital project at the North Facility,” said Montgomery County Commissioner President and Solid Waste Advisory Committee (SWAC) member Judy Dodge. “In these economic times, we are constantly looking at ways to save taxpayer money and continue outstanding services to our citizens.”

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 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.

Consolidation of the North and South Transfer Stations:

In October, 2011, the Solid Waste Advisory Committee (SWAC) recommended the consolidation.
