South Recycling & Disposal Station Redevelopment project site.
Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) will redevelop the old South Recycling and Disposal Station site, located near the intersection of 5th Avenue South and South Kenyon Street in Seattle. This 10-acre site is owned by SPU and will be redeveloped to include a recycling and reuse center and the existing household hazardous waste facility, which will be incorporated into the redeveloped site. A new pedestrian path on 5th Avenue South will extend the path that is already north of the site. Solid waste trailer/tractor parking and a decant facility will also be onsite for SPU and City use only, not open to the public.
The project team has been busy designing and locating the facilities on site, including seeking public input on a new walking path that will be built along 5th Avenue South. Design is anticipated to finish in early 2017. The team has also been working with the Office of Arts and Culture to secure an artist for, and provide input on the public art piece. As the redevelopment of the site will include the removal of some trees, the project team has been exploring how and where to replace those trees.
