After acceptance checks and weighing, the waste delivered to the Via Stradelli Guelfi plant is stored in the various sectors that make up the platform. It is stored or grouped in suitable areas before being reloaded on to large-capacity trucks for subsequent delivery to recovery or disposal plants.
The complex includes a collection centre serving the citizens of the municipality of Bologna, managed by HERA S.p.A. Operational Services - Bologna.
The Transfer Station is equipped with run-off rainwater treatment equipment (first flush rainwater system). All contaminated process water from the waste storage and handling areas is collected through a network of channels and gratings, and fed into high-capacity tanks which are emptied when necessary by tanker trucks. The resulting liquid waste is sent to authorised treatment plants.
