As Len Christopher, General Manager of Republic Services, put it, “There was a lot of room for improvement here.”
But now that is all so much old history. Crews began work in Nov. 2014 on what is slated to be the largest residential recycling facility in the nation. At 110,000 SF, the Southern Nevada Recycling Complex will double the residential recycling capacity in the area and will have the capacity to process roughly 265,000 tons on an annual basis. It is set to open in fall 2015 and is expected to eventually employ 180-full-time personnel.
“A recycling complex of this magnitude should be coming to Las Vegas,” said Tim Oudman, Area President of Republic Services.
“Southern Nevada is home to considerable natural beauty, and this community is deeply committed to sustainability. We are truly proud to invest in a recycling complex that will help preserve the local environment for future generations and enable customers to meet or exceed their recycling goals.”
