This new 50,000 sq. ft. metal industrial recycling facility is the result of a public-private partnership. It is a very high-profile industrial project that incorporates an innovative approach to plastic recycling, which was awarded a presidential honor. The facility is situated on the site of a former plywood manufacturing plant. The plant had been removed, but the concrete slab for the building remained and was ground up and used as fill for the site. A 3,700 sq. ft. office building is incorporated into the structure that allows for a direct, internal connection between the offices and manufacturing areas. The project’s grand opening was heralded in the press and attended by elected officials who praised the facility as the first of its kind.
