The Brooklyn terminal is a transload terminal handling containers and supporting Customers Waste Management and the New York City Sanitation Dept. At this terminal, Watco Team Members bring railcars over from the New York & Atlantic Railway (NY&A) to the Varick Ave. terminal. In addition to providing switching services, the Watco Team also performs the transload of the containers as well. Using heavy lift container handlers, Watco Team Member’s unload the container from the railcar, place it on an awaiting chassis for movement approximately ¾ of a mile to the Solid Waste Transfer Station. Upon arrival at the waste transfer station, our Customer loads the containers, places them back onto the chassis, and moves them back over to the railcars where Watco Team Members reload the full containers and restage the loaded railcars back to the NY & A yard for interchange.
