New Transfer Building Opens

November 12, 2015 · By Admin

LCSWMA just reached a major milestone in the transformation of the Susquehanna Resource Management Complex (SRMC), with the opening of a new 29,800 square-foot facility. The building adds transfer, maintenance, and administrative capacity to the site.

Constructed to address operational efficiencies and improve customer experience, the $5 million transfer building will primarily be used for construction/demolition waste loads and smaller customer deliveries. This keeps residents and smaller hauling customers off the main tipping floor of the waste-to-energy plant and out of the way of larger garbage trucks. Benefits include improved traffic flow, reduced customer on-site time, and increased safety for customers and LCSWMA staff.

In addition to the new transfer building, LCSWMA has invested approximately $8.6 million in other changes at the SRMC site over the last two years. Examples include:

  1. Moving the main site entrance to 19th Street
  2. Installation of a new scale house with separate inbound and outbound scales
  3. Numerous upgrades to the waste-to-energy plant
  4. Substantial improvements to site aesthetics

These modifications not only enhanced the aesthetics of the site, but also increased site traffic flow and reduced on-site/cueing time by an average of 50 percent.

The transformation of the SRMC demonstrates both LCSWMA’s standard of excellence, as well as a commitment to restoring the site into a community asset once again.
