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.
Over the course of 2017, the project team has been conducting a reevaluation of the project. We continue to work on designing and locating the facilities on site, including seeking public input on a new walking path that will be built along 5th Avenue South. In partnership with the Office of Arts and Culture, the project will include a public art piece as part of the walking path. Since the redevelopment of the site will include removal of some trees, the team has been reviewing final options for how and where to replace those trees. We now anticipate the Design process to finish in 2019.
