EBC Solid Waste Management Program: Wrap & Roll – the Future of Rail Haul of Solid Waste in New England
November 7, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am

The New England solid waste markets will likely experience a shift in their business models as regional waste-to-energy facilities and landfills continue to close and new facilities become more and more difficult to locate, permit, and construct. This shift away from local disposal may lead to wastes being hauled to distant, out-of-state disposal facilities by rail. On the up-side, the added haul costs may lead to increases in processing to capture additional recyclable materials and help reduce the tonnage that needs to be hauled. On the downside, states will be giving up their “waste autonomy” and will be subject to increases in haul charges and potential future “waste taxes” imposed by states that accept out-of-state waste materials.
Please join us for this EBC Solid Waste Management program to discuss the future of rail haul in New England. Speakers will discuss the rail haul of solid wastes, including topics such as: the overall rail haul process; the long and short of dealing with railroads; rail transfer stations; regulatory lessons learned; baling and wrapping of wastes for rail haul; gondola car vs. intermodal containers; and much more.
There will be ample time for open discussion and Q & A from the attendees.
