Project Description

The public tipping area at the Meadow Vista Transfer Station (MVTS) was constructed in 1984 and provides solid waste disposal services to Meadow Vista residents and surrounding communities. The public tipping area consists of five bays for tipping mixed garbage, construction debris, and green waste, with additional bins for:

  • Appliances
  • Batteries
  • Electronic waste
  • Metals
  • Tires

Improvements

Improvements will include an extension of the existing retaining wall to expand the turnaround area, with the goal of improving traffic circulation. The project will also provide new fencing, two new concrete pads for additional bins, and new asphalt paving over areas of existing asphalt and gravel base. View the monthly updates.
