Core Session 3
The Department is announcing a presentation of core training session number 3, Hazardous and Special Waste open to all. This will be a one-day workshop for municipal transfer station operators, commercial operators, selectmen, town managers, and others interested.
We have used a PowerPoint slide presentation of operational issues at transfer stations around the State in previous training sessions on this topic. The slides lead participants through a visual discussion of how to operate a transfer facility and provide an opportunity to learn from others’ successes and mistakes. This presentation is periodically updated to include new slides focusing on the most recent challenges to transfer station operation. Please register to join us soon because space is limited at some locations. Directions to locations are available on our web site or upon request:
