Project goals and benefits
At the new facility, customers will find the following amenities that will improve upon current services.
Better customer safety
The new facility will have flat floors for unloading and sorting. Without an open pit, customers are safer and less at risk of slips and falls.
More capacity and efficiency
The new facility will have dedicated space to process more recycling. Residential and commercial haulers will use separate entrances to improve traffic flow and customer safety.
Less odor and noise
The new facility will include more covered and enclosed spaces, a better ventilation system, automated rolling access doors, and entrance and exits designed to minimize noise in the neighborhood. These improvements will reduce the odor and noise coming from the new facility.
Space to create community
East of the new facility, we created an open space(pdf) that will include a play area for children, a sports court, an open play field, walkways, static exercise stations, and art installations.
