How Does a Waste Transfer Station Affect Nearby Property Values?

August 2, 2022 | By Jake Bartram

A waste transfer station is a crucial component of proper waste disposal within a community. However, many residents are concerned that having one too close to their homes will affect the value of their property. Those who live within a few miles of a waste transfer station can be subjected to odors, noise, and excessive truck traffic.

The last thing any potential homebuyer wants to see is a neighborhood full of visible trash and clutter. However, waste disposal is essential for keeping a community at its best in appearance and safety. An abundance of trash and waste can contaminate soil and water, endanger wildlife, increase the risk of forest fires, and can be hazardous to your health. Talk about a negative impact on your property value!

ADM Rolloff is a waste transfer station in the Greater Atlanta area. We are a low-volume, eco-friendly transfer station committed to waste disposal in a manner that is good for the environment and the community we serve. A low-volume transfer station means that the waste we store is far less likely to affect surrounding property values. In 2005, an independent study entitled Do Landfills Always Depress Nearby Property Values? found that all high-volume waste transfer stations that were studied had a negative impact on property values, while the majority of low-volume waste transfer stations had very little impact on property values. In fact, 20-28% of low-volume stations had no impact at all.

In addition to providing dumpsters in Atlanta, we have a waste transfer station in Hampton, GA. We take waste and junk such as trash, old furniture and appliances, water heaters, mattresses, yard debris, scrap metal, tires, electronics, and construction debris and we recycle as much of it as we possibly can. Whatever we can’t recycle, we dispose of in the most responsible manner. It’s best to give us a call ahead of time to find out what we will take off your hands. We do not take liquids, paint, or hazardous materials. Give us a call today and you’ll be convinced of our commitment to keeping our community and environment safe.
