City of Stamford Transfer Station Tipping Floor

The City of Stamford Transfer Station receives approximately 350 tons per day of residential and commercial trash collected by city crews and commercial haulers. Its tipping floor, which had not been repaired since 2009, was severely worn due to the harsh conditions caused by acidic leachate production and the scraping of the blades of the wheel loaders used to stockpile and load trash into transfer trailers.

After a thorough investigation of the affected area, D&B designed a solution that included the partial demolition and replacement of the existing tipping floor’s damaged sections with a concrete topping slab and an anvil topping slab. The project utilized a two-phase approach that limited the impact of construction on the facility’s daily operations.
