Landfill Ban: What Transfer Station Operators Need to Know

Transfer Station operators should establish a program for the proper collection and handling of CEDs at their facilities.

The program should include:

  • Public education;

  • Signage on site;

  • Modification to transfer station operational plans to accommodate CEDs;

  • Plans for managing broken CRT glass;

  • Plans for storage of electronics;

  • Employee training on environmental and health issues related to the handling of CEDs.

The program should also include the transfer stations working arrangement with their ultimate disposal site and the process for adhering to that plan.

Alternatively transfer station management may establish a relationship with an electronic recycling processor for the recycling of CEDs. A list of recyclers and questions to ask vendors is available on this website.

Establishing a system for tracking costs associated with the collection and disposal of CEDs is important. Volumes and types of materials as well as additional costs incurred in the purchase of equipment, transportation and recycling/processing should be considered. Tracking information should be made available to the WV SWMB, WVDEP and the PSC upon request and must accompany any requests for increases in tariffs.
