Megaphone saying Attention Randolph Residents, It is time to Comment on the TLA Project in Holbrook

*Update: Comment Period has been extended to 10/26/22*


Residents of Randolph have an opportunity to submit comments regarding the Approval to construct a large solid waste transfer station facility at 3 & 6 Phillips Road in Holbrook, Massachusetts. 

TLA-Holbrook LLC is proposing to construct a large solid waste transfer facility that would handle up to 1,000 tons per day of municipal solid waste (“MSW”). 

The proposed Facility is intended to accept MSW from typical waste collection vehicles of all sizes and sort and consolidate the waste into rail cars or 100-yard truck trailers for transport to various locations throughout the country for disposal and/or recycling. 

The proposed Facility will include a 22,300 square foot Transfer Station building, weigh scales, a residential drop-off area, a scale house and office building, and railroad tracks. Working areas of the Facility will be paved. 

Stormwater run-off from the Facility will be collected in a series of catch basins, detention basins, and underground stormwater detention galleries, treated, and discharged to an on-Site culvert.

The proposed maximum daily materials acceptance rate is 1,000 tons per day. 

TLA-Holbrook proposes to operate the Facility to accept waste on Monday through Friday from 6:00 AM to 5:30 PM and Saturdays from 6:00 AM to 1:00 PM, and conduct clean-up operations until 9:00 PM Monday through Friday and until 4:00 PM on Saturdays.
