Currently recycled materials processed through the TDS MRF travel across the country and around the world to be created into new products using these recycled materials. Our plan is to encourage the processing of those recyclables and the manufacturing of products locally within the TDS Eco-Industrial Park. This will reduce costs, create local jobs, curtail the carbon footprint that international transportation requires, and close the recycling circle right here at home.
The TDS MRF is the heart of the Eco-Industrial Park which sits on 210 acres of TDS property, which have been dedicated to the future expansion of the Eco-Industrial Park. The MRF will supply other green-minded partners with the materials they need to give recycled materials new life. Utilizing the future landfill gas to energy project, these manufacturers should be operating in the most “green” manner possible.
