Phase 2
• Construction of a processing facility to receive 1,500 tons per day of municipal solid waste (MSW). This facility will include the construction of a new 50,000 sf MSW receiving building. The facility will extract recyclable materials from municipal solid waste utilizing advanced optical and robotic separation equipment. Residual waste that cannot be recycled will be transported out of state for disposal primarily by rail
• Construction of a 30,000 sf state of the art biosolids drying facility. Dried biosolids will be transported out of state for disposal primarily by rail.
