D&B successfully has conducted all aspects of transfer station feasibility evaluation, site selection, design, permitting, construction services, and operations contracting services.
D&B has developed construction, hauling, and disposal cost estimates to determine the economic feasibility of existing station modification versus construction of new transfer stations. These studies were conducted for transfer station capacities for municipal solid waste and recyclables ranging from 25 to 2,200 tons per day (tpd) capacity, including stations in rural, suburban and urban areas. D&B has prepared detailed engineering designs and specifications for both new stations and modifications to existing stations.
