Less trucks on roads…

A transfer station or a transshipment center is the intermediary between the collection trucks and the landfill sites. The trucks dump their load in trailers, with a capacity of approximately 30 tonnes that next make their way to certified engineered landfill sites.  Computerized facilities monitor the origin of loads, accurately measure volumes in transit, and produce detailed reports for all types of customers.

Services Matrec owns a transfer station that constitutes a valuable asset for reducing costs related to transportation and sanitary operations for customers. This way, there is less truck on the road, reducing considerably the production of greenhouse gases. These transfer centres have been designed specifically to ensure good collaboration with neighbouring companies and residents.
