Facility accepts MSW, nonhazardous industrial waste, C&D debris and single-stream recyclables from the public and third-party haulers.
Advanced Disposal, headquartered in Ponte Vedra, Fla., has opened its newest transfer station in Rosco, Ill. The facility will service customers in the greater Rockford, Ill., area. The company purchased the property, which includes an 18,000-square-foot building, a 3,000-square-foot office and a 10,700-square-foot building, in June 2013. The buildings had been idle since late 2012.
"We are pleased to open the Roscoe Transfer Station and provide businesses and residents a comprehensive and environmentally responsible way to recycle or dispose of waste materials," says Jay Rooney, regional vice president for Advanced Disposal.
The facility will accept municipal solid waste, nonhazardous industrial waste, construction and demolition debris and single-stream recyclables from the public and third-party haulers. The waste delivered to the facility will be shipped to Advance Disposal’s Orchard Hills landfill in Davis Junction, Ill.; recyclables will be shipped to recycling companies in the area.
Recyclable materials to be accepted at the facility include glass containers, food jars and bottles without lids (green, brown and clear); plastics 1-7; metal food cans; aluminum; old corrugated containers; mixed paper; electronics; shingles; and yard waste.
