SEATTLE (Waste Advantage): City of Delaware, Delaware County, and regional officials joined with Rumpke Waste and Recycling executives to cut the ribbon on the new joint Transfer and Recycling Center (TRC) located on U.S. Route 42 North. The new $6.5 million, 14,000-square-foot facility is located next door to Delaware County’s existing transfer station and is designed to “handle future projections for daily waste volumes as the region’s residential and commercial population continues to grow.”
The new facility design includes improved traffic flow, a public recycling dropoff, and easy access waste drop off for residential and commercial customers, Rumpke reported. The existing Delaware County Transfer Station next door will be repurposed for other uses by the Delaware, Knox, Marion & Morrow (DKMM) County Solid Waste District.
Tiffany Maag, director/sanitary engineer at Delaware County Regional Sewer District, was one of the speakers at Friday’s event and said the new facility will allow for the county to manage “the fast paced growth in the county in a cost-efficient manner and will also, at the same time, make drop off and recycling easier for our residents. This project has been a successful public/private partnership between the county and Rumpke, and we look forward to that continued collaboration for many years to come,” Maag said.
