This refers to the movement and transportation of the waste throughout the system. It includes the transfer of the waste from the collection point to the storage facility, to the treatment facility, and to the utilization site. The waste may require transfer as a solid, liquid, or slurry, depending on the total solids concentration.
The system plan should include an analysis of the consistency of the waste to be moved, method of transportation, distance between points, frequency and scheduling, necessary equipment, and the installation and management costs of the transfer system.
