The regional transfer station is a privatized facility which serves the commercial haulers
of Cape Cod and the residential drop off sites of the Towns of Barnstable and Yarmouth. Solid waste is delivered to the transfer station for processing and shipment by rail to the SEMASS waste to energy plant in Rochester, MA.
The station also handles some municipal and commercial recyclable materials. These materials are sent to a MRF (Materials Recovery Facility) for further processing.
