Miller Waste Durham owns and operates two transfer stations within Durham Region. One is located in Pickering and the other is situated on the Whitby and Oshawa border. These two transfer stations combined process hundreds of thousands of tonnes of residential and commercial waste each year.
The residential waste is then shipped to the new Durham York Energy Centre located in Clarington. This waste management facility produces energy from the combustion of garbage creating enough energy to power approximately 10,000 homes. There are two waste-fired combustors at this facility.
New prices have been posted and go into effect July 15, 2018. Click the appropriate option below to see detailed information on each of our transfer station facilities.
In 2012 Miller took over operations of the Durham Region Whitby Two Stream Material Recycling Facility
Once operations began at the Whitby MRF Miller immediately began upgrades to the system as part of the Request for Proposal (RFP) process. These upgrades included a residue clean up system designed to help capture missed recyclables and increase diversion, as well as an upgrade to the Compressors to optimize the Optical Sorters.
Over the past 5 years’ Miller and its dedicated team of employees have provided Durham Region with “Only The Best” service to this contract. Over this time Miller has also completed additional equipment upgrades for Durham Region with the most recent one in 2017. Miller recognized the need to change the design of the Container Line to handle the ever changing Material Composition within the Blue Box program. These continued Blue Box composition changes had resulted significant increases in both labour and equipment costs as it led to the implementation of a second shift. This facility upgrade included additional optic sortation, larger glass screens, industrial perforators, air sort and the upgrade of an existing conveyor. This upgrade enabled Miller to increase productivity by a minimum of 35%, it increased the diversion rate while decreasing the residue levels, as well as decreasing the overall labour and equipment costs.
