The transfer stations

Waste transfer stations are the heart of the long-distance waste transportation system.

 

Max Aicher either builds transfer stations from the scratch or delivers just the essential technical equipment.

Waste transfer stations consist of high- performance waste compactors and waste containers, weighbridges with the required infrastructure, container handling systems and transport vehicles according to customer's requirements.

 

Waste, unloaded into the hoppers by the collection vehicles, dumper trucks or by private individuals is pressed directly into the containers.

 

Depending on the type of waste, it is compressed to a quarter of its original volume.

 

When the containers have reached their maximum allowable weight, they are automatically disconnected from the press, loaded on rail or trucks for transport to the designated point of utilisation.

 

This system has been in operation for as long as 30 years.
