GBB prepared a feasibility assessment of a transfer station with out-of-County disposal service, to be sited at the County’s Appeal Landfill. Based on the assessment, the County decided to undertake procurement of a private transfer station, waste transportation and disposal services. This would allow the County to take advantage of a capacity surplus and attractive pricing in the marketplace and to greatly extend its landfill life and delay, or possibly avoid, construction, closure and post-closure care of a new landfill cell.
GBB assisted the County in the procurement of the private transfer station and disposal services. GBB prepared a Request for Proposals and assisted the County in soliciting and evaluating proposals, and developing contract documents, and then helped negotiate a service contract and site lease with the selected contractor, USA Waste Services, Inc. (now Waste Management, Inc.). The transfer station was constructed and is now operational.
