     Harwich Transfer Station Information

    The Harwich Transfer Station, open seven days a week from 8am - 4pm, 362 days a year, actually consists of three separate operations on one site. The Transfer Station accepts household waste, also known as municipal solid waste (MSW), from residents and commercial haulers. The MSW is loaded into 100-yard trailers and transported to SEMASS, a waste to energy facility, located in Rochester, Massachusetts, approximately 50 miles from Harwich. Disposal Area staff made 350 trips to this facility moving a total of 8300 tons of MSW.

    The second component of the operation is the drop-off Recycling Center, located east of the Transfer Station. The site consists of ten roll-off containers and several tables. A total of 1700 tons of recycled material was hauled mostly to New Bedford and accounted for a total of 275 trips. In addition, there are Salvation Army bins for clothing donations, and paint and oil recycling sheds.

    The last major component of the operation is known as the C&D pad. C&D (construction and demolition, i.e. wood waste from building and remodeling, shingles, unusable furniture and mattresses) is dropped off on a concrete pad south of the Transfer Station where it is processed to increase density and loaded into 100-yard trailers for transport. During 2002, our trucks made 300 trips, hauling a total of 5,500 tons of C&D.
