When your garbage is dropped off at one of these transfers stations (pictured here) by a garbage truck, it is transferred to one of the SWA’s huge 18 wheeler trucks. One of our 18 wheeler trucks can haul about 5-6 smaller garbage truck loads in it. This saves gas, maintenance on curbside trucks and roads, and allows curbside truck workers to get back on their routes more quickly. The SWA’s 18 wheelers then come here to our main facility. We process your solid waste in 5 different ways.
