McKellar Transfer Station Solar Compactors Project

Projects Description

This project involves the replacement of side loading covered roll off bins for the collection of blue box recyclables at the McKellar transfer station with two compactor bins.  The compactors are solar powered with 110V or single phase back up and will reduce bin pick up frequency through increased compaction of recyclables resulting in a projected savings of almost $40,000/year and a project payback of under 3 years.
