The intent of the manual is to promote best practices in the design and operation of municipal waste transfer stations in Alberta and provide guidance for environmental protection and work place safety. With an increasing emphasis on diverting resources away from landfill disposal, the Manual addresses the integration of materials recovery for recycling and the safe management of household hazardous waste. The manual will assist the reader to understand the steps involved in planning, design and operation of transfer stations. It will also provide the reader with alternative transfer station system designs and their application within rural and urban waste management systems, and within regional waste management systems.
