Temporary Waste Transfer Facilityhttps://www.simcoe.ca/SolidWasteManagement/Pages/Temporary-Materials-Management-Facility.aspx1/26/2021 3:29:22 PMTemporary Waste Transfer Facility<p>​<br></p><p>On Tuesday, January 26, 2021, County Council approved a staff report that provided direction for staff to design and build a temporary materials transfer facility centrally located in the middle of Simcoe County, at the Oro Waste Management Facility. </p><p><strong>About the facility:​</strong></p><ul><li>The facility will be developed at the existing Oro Waste Management Facility on Old Barrie Road</li><li>Once complete, it will receive materials from curbside collection vehicles, where staff will consolidate and load materials into larger haulage vehicles and transport items for processing/disposal</li><li>There will be two buildings constructed:</li><ul><li>Main transfer (garbage one week recycling the next): 120' X 175' approximate</li><li>Organics transfer: building 34' X 50' approximate with additional outside transfer pad with material being transferred to inside organics storage building at end of every operating day. This is not a processing facility. </li></ul><li><span style="font-size:1em;">Long-term (following completion of the Environmental Resource Recovery Centre – ERRC, estimated at 3-5 years) the facility will be repurposed and likely serve as a vehicle maintenance facility for the Solid Waste Management fleet and for a repair, servicing and distribution hub of the automated carts required for our new curbside waste collection contract starting November 2021</span></li></ul><div><strong style="font-size:1em;">​<br></strong></div><div><strong style="font-size:1em;">Why the County is building the facility:</strong><br><ul><li>The County's current waste collection contractor provides transfer services to the County until November 2021</li><li>Under the County's new collection contract, starting November 2021, the County requires materials transfer services. The collections service and the transfer service had two separate RFPs to enable increased bidding opportunities from the private sector </li><li>Materials transfer facilities are severely limited in available capacity within Simcoe County and the recent RFP for these services provided only one response, which was significantly above the budgeted scope for the work</li><li>This limited capacity and increased cost to contract services provides further justification for the Materials Management portion of the ERRC project, and financial analysis confirmed that there are cost savings associated with the County operating this service in-house</li><li>Long-term, the ERRC project, which is currently being reviewed under the LPAT process, will provide the County with a permanent materials transfer facility (operated and owned by the County)</li><li>With delays in ERRC approvals, this temporary facility at the Oro-site will serve as a transfer site until the ERRC is developed</li><li>The Oro-landfill is centrally located and has pre-existing approvals for managing and transferring wastes.  Additional amendments will be required for the transfer operation and the revised tonnage of material that will be going through this facility.</li></ul><strong style="font-size:1em;">Cost:</strong><br><ul><li>The capital cost for the project is budgeted to cost approximately $5.5 million (capital costs)</li><li>By bringing the transfer service in house, the County estimates a 27% saving over the only proposal received through the single RFP response for this contracted service</li><ul><li>The single RFP response proposed transfer of only 50% of the County's required annual tonnages. Unfortunately, the proposed price (when extended to meet 100% of the County's needs) came in nearly 60% higher than our County budget, based on current costs to provide this service</li></ul><li>If the capital costs for the project are amortized over 20 years (significantly less than the useful life of the buildings) the resulting cost comparison indicates that our temporary transfer costs would be half of our existing operating costs for outside transfer.</li><li>Through consultation with our new waste contractor it has been determined that one larger temporary transfer facility is the most efficient and logistically appropriate approach. The County will also be making minor modifications to other landfill sites with existing budget to accommodate transfer support as needed<br></li></ul><p>​</p></div>
