Griffith Company Building Largest Recycling Center
NWI Times │ November 25, 2014
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 an 110,000-square-foot transfer station next to an existing 88,000-square-foot facility that will double Republic Services Inc.’s capacity in southern Nevada. The Griffith company helped design the layout and is now overseeing construction of the facility, which will be able to process 70 tons an hour, as compared to the 50 tons an hour that is typical at such facilities.
“We’ve been working on the project for almost two years now,” Cambridge Companies Vice President of Project Development Jeff Eriks said. “In terms of the recycling facilities, this is the largest single-stream facility in the country.”
Shipments of newspaper, cardboard, bottles, paper towels and metal cans will arrive at the Southern Nevada Recycling Complex, which will sort them out so they can be individually recycled. The transfer station will have the capacity to process roughly 1,000 tons of mixed recyclables every day, serving more than 535,000 households.
“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. “It is fitting that a recycling complex of this magnitude is coming to Las Vegas. 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.”

The CP Group │ November 6, 2014
Republic Services, Inc. (NYSE: RSG) announced today that its subsidiary Republic Silver State Disposal, Inc. has started construction on a new recycling facility that when complete will double residential recycling capacity in southern Nevada. The new 110,000 square foot facility will be home to highly advanced recycling technologies, and will be built next to an existing 88,000 square foot facility. The increased capacity is expected to make the Southern Nevada Recycling Complex the largest residential recycling complex in the nation.
“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. “It is fitting that a recycling complex of this magnitude is coming to Las Vegas. 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.”
Construction at the Southern Nevada Recycling Complex is expected to create 80 new jobs between project partners Cambridge Construction, CP Group, and EV&A. The Complex is scheduled to begin operations in fall 2015, and is expected to eventually employ 180 full-time personnel.
“The City of North Las Vegas is proud to be the future home of the nation’s largest residential recycling complex,” said John J. Lee, mayor of North Las Vegas. “Our community will take tremendous pride in this complex and its contributions to the local economy. With expanded recycling capabilities and a world-class learning center, our residents and businesses will have more resources than ever before to increase overall recycling participation. We applaud Republic Services for making a sustainable investment in Southern Nevada’s future.”
The Southern Nevada Recycling Complex will feature an interactive learning center that offers visitors a rare, first-hand view of the recycling process. It will include displays, videos and educational materials on recycling and sustainability. The learning center is intended to be a resource for the community and customers, as well as an educational destination for sustainability-minded Las Vegas tourists.
