A Griffith-based design-build firm is constructing the country’s largest residential recycling complex — one capable of processing more than 265,000 tons of mixed recyclables a year — in the Las Vegas area.
Cambridge Companies is building a 110,000 SF transfer station next to an existing 88,000 SF facility that will double Republic Services Inc.’s capacity in southern Nevada. Cambridge helped design the layout and is now overseeing the construction of the facility. Successfully, The facility will be able to process 70 tons an hour.
“We’ve been working on the project for two years now,” said Jeff Eriks.
Newspaper, cardboard, bottles, paper towels, and metal cans will arrive at the recycling complex. They will get sorted out to be individually recycled. The Transfer Station has the capacity to process roughly 1,000 tons of mixed recyclables every day, serving over 535,000 homes.
“This is a special day for the city of North Las Vegas, Clark County, and customers throughout Southern Nevada,” said Tim Oudman, Area President of Republic Services.
