Boyd Roll Off Services Inc.
Boyd Roll Off Services Inc. (Boyd) operates a transfer station at 1107 Thompson Avenue in McKees Rocks, Allegheny County. On October 4, 2022, Boyd submitted a major permit modification application to increase its allowable maximum daily waste it can take in each day from 500 tons per day to 1,000 tons per day. No construction is proposed in this application.
A transfer facility is defined as a facility that receives and processes or temporarily stores municipal or residual waste at a location other than the generation site, and which facilitates the transportation or transfer of municipal or residual waste to a processing or disposal facility. The term includes a facility that uses a method or technology to convert part or all of the waste materials for offsite reuse.
This facility accepts municipal solid waste (“household garbage”), construction and demolition debris, certain appliances and electronic waste, recyclables, and approved solid residual wastes (commercial and industrial waste) for processing, recycling, re-use, or disposal at separate facilities. The activity at this facility occurs within an enclosed building.
