Scales and Weighing Equipment for Transfer Stations

A waste transfer station is a facility which is used for the collection and processing of mixed waste streams before it is transferred to another location for treatment or disposal. 

Measurement lies at the heart of any waste transfer site, with weighing of incoming and outgoing waste absolutely critical to the site’s effective operation.


What can we help with?

Maximising transfer station site efficiency

Are you struggling to keep your transfer station operating efficiently? We believe that weighing should be an effortless, integrated part of the waste transfer process – and we’ve developed the systems to make this possible.

The first and most important step for any vehicle arriving at a waste transfer site is a visit to a weighbridge. Correct weight data is vital to ensuring that the facility is charging the correct tippage or gate fees, but also provides the information required for waste transfer notes and reporting.  

With the potential for a continuous flow of heavy good vehicles into and out of the site, managing traffic flow can make a huge difference to efficiency. Access barriers, traffic lights and digital cameras can all be used as part of a weighbridge traffic management  system. Custom-fitted sensors verify that each vehicle has fully entered or exited the weighbridge weighing zone, highlighting abnormal - and potentially fraudulent – weighing transactions

 

In addition, floor scales and forklift scales can help to weigh inputs and outputs throughout the waste sorting and recovering process. Our weighing systems slot seamlessly into your existing systems so they’ll only make them more efficient.

 

Service solutions

Thanks to our network of highly skilled engineers, we’re no more than an average of 26 minutes away from your site. Team that with the UK’s largest fleet of weighbridge test units, and we’ll work against the clock to get your operation back up and running as quickly as possible.

Compliance with waste legislation

As legislation across the waste and recycling industry becomes increasingly complex, so do the requirements for tracking and reporting waste management processes. Waste Transfer Notes (WTNs) are required by the Environment Agency to state accurate weight data, while regulations such as the EU Waste Framework Directive is also reliant on being able to provide an accurate assessment of the weight of different weight streams, along with measurement of waste reduction.

Our efficient, robust weighing systems and complimentary software can tie in with you existing back-office systems to make regulatory compliance straightforward, while helping your operation to run efficiently.
