The company’s previous facility in Birmingham was destroyed by a tornado Jan. 23. Since then employees had been working out of a trailer with no interruption in service, said Brandi Hunter, corporate marketing/communications manager for Waste Pro, in an e-mail.
The new facility features a twin baling system and can generate more than 7,500 tons of baled recycled material per month.
Division Manager George Nicholson said all the facility’s staff was unharmed by the tornado and the only losses were material.
