Transfer Stations

A transfer station is a facility used to store temporarily solid waste before it is transported to a treatment, recycling, recovery or disposal facility. If you want to establish a transfer station, you must apply for a permit from the Ministry of Environment and complete and maintain an operations plan.

Transfer stations should close if the owner no longer intends to accept waste or waste has not been accepted for at least two consecutive years. A closure plan includes procedures for how you plan to stop accepting waste, closing the site, ensuring sufficient site information is available and determining appropriate corrective measures to protect the environment after closure.
