Waste Management is proposing plans for a transfer station on land in Fort Worth, Texas now occupied by a landfill. The company has applied to the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission to operate the 24,000-square-foot indoor facility, which would have an average daily stream of 3,000 tons and a maximum of 500 trucks daily. The transfer station would be built in the landfill's final year of operation, which will come within four years. Waste from the facility would be hauled to landfills in eastern Tarrant County, Texas. Local residents have opposed the facility, since they charge that Waste Management had pledged to place a park on the site after closure.
