The drive-through facility, approximately 47,000 square feet, accepts paper, plastic, glass, cardboard, batteries, fluorescent bulbs and electronics, including TVs and computers, the agency said in a news release.
It also accepts household hazardous material such as paints, stains, cleaners and other household materials.
It has a recycling tipping floor of 25,000 square feet, where the recyclables will be dropped, loaded and trucked to a processing facility. The space will be used for various resource recovery efforts, including wood, asphalt shingles and other materials as markets emerge.
Areas of the building have in-floor heating, which is captured waste heat from the agency’s landfill gas-to-energy system. The agency is seeking Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
Residents can use the services for no charge. Qualified businesses can use the hazardous program for a charge.
