Larson Design Group (LDG) collaborated with Cambridge Companies, a construction services company, to provide mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and structural engineering for this single-stream recycling facility, which opened in November of 2015. Coordination with an external architect (EV&A) and third party vendors was required for the success of the project. Cambridge Companies collaborated with Republic Services to develop the basis of design for the project and facilitated its construction.
Republic Services, the second largest non-hazardous solid waste management company in the United States with 62 recycling centers nationwide, owns and operates this North Las Vegas single-stream facility.
The overall project schedule was aggressive in order to meet the goals of the client. This 11,000 sq. ft. new build, expanding existing recycling coverage in Southern Nevada, makes this facility the largest residential recycling center in North America, processing 70 tons per hour, or 1,000 tons per day. Single-stream recycling saves the consumer time by allowing all recyclables to be combined into a single collection unit.
