GBB Transfer Station Siting Study

The purpose of the Gershman, Brickner & Bratton, Inc. (GBB) Transfer Station Siting Study, dated June 2, 2005, was to conduct a comprehensive evaluation of suitable sites for a municipal solid waste transfer station in Prince George's County. It was necessary to site a transfer station in a central location in order to collect solid waste from urban areas using small trucks with a transfer to larger semi-trailers, railroad cars, or barges. From the transfer station, solid waste is transported to landfills or other distant disposal facilities.
