What is a transfer station?
Transfer stations are an integral part of any community and are common throughout the state of Oklahoma. Transfer stations are part of the waste disposal process where waste can be consolidated and compacted in an enclosed facility and then moved off site within 24 hours. The waste is primarily construction and demolition waste generated from the local area.
