Transfer stations will send material to other SW facilities that will separate restricted material PROPOSED STRATEGY 1. Loads under 5 cubic yards need not be inspected 2. 20% deminimis standard of ABC, metal and wood combined per load 3. MWCs may accept wood for combustion 4. Transfer stations can send loads to facilities with approved Waste Ban Compliance Plan
