Jon Mitchell was excited the Redwood Gazette was there to take pictures of the new $7 million waste and recycling facility on the western edge of Redwood Falls.
“This is probably the only time you’re going to be able to get photos of it with a clean floor!” Mitchell said Friday, showing off the spotless 10-inch thick concrete floors.
The clean floors won’t last long.
The new facility — the Redwood/Renville Regional Material Recovery Facility — is about to begin testing all the new equipment inside.
Right now, when Redwood Falls garbage trucks are full, the drivers have to make a two-hour round trip west to a landfill to empty the contents.
