Waste by Rail Inc. offers a complete custom transportation service for generators of all types of solid and hazardous waste, including direct transportation from the generator site to the disposal site or to a generator identified processing facility.
Waste By Rail clients are provided with the most cost effective transportation mode involving shipments via direct rail, truck to rail (intermodal) or truck direct. ECDC/Waste By Rail, Inc. can engineer transportation plans specific to your needs that will utilize our fleet of over 2,000 rail cars and intermodal containers.
A wide variety of specialized private railroad equipment is utilized, matched by the WBR staff to the customer's waste type. This American Railroad Association approved equipment includes intermodal containers on private flatcars, both high and low capacity gondola and hopper cars, tankcars for liquids and boxcars for drums. These containers can be used to hold any type of bulk solid waste, ranging from low-density waste materials (such as plant waste, auto fluff and asbestos) to heavier more dense materials (such as contaminated soils, sludges, construction and demolition debris). Additionally, liquid waste is transported on the railroad through the use of special tank cars that are in excess of 5,000 gallons for larger volume projects and the smaller standard tank cars of 5,000 gallons for smaller volume projects.
Our clients often take advantage of the opportunity to ship larger volumes of waste in large 100-ton rail cars and intermodal containers on flat cars. This is a safe and legal alternative to standard truck transportation and offers significant savings to our clients.
These intermodal rail containers are loaded at the generator's facility, picked up by WBR trucks and delivered to the nearest rail yard for placement onto flatcars for shipment to their ultimate destination. Available in a variety of sizes from 20 to 80 cubic yards, the size of the container provided is matched to the density of the material for shipment, thereby maximizing container shipping weight and increasing efficiency.
The gondola rail car is typically used for hauling bulk materials such as contaminated soils, glass, scrap steel or other bulky commodities. The payload capacity of gondola cars range from 95 to 114 tons.
