- Citizen Services Group to build and operate a plant to manage all recyclable waste
- The contract may be extended for another 10 years
The city of Dallas has awarded FCC the contract to build and operate a state-of-the-art facility to manage all of the city’s recyclable waste for15 years, with the option for a 10-year extension. The turnover volume for the plant is approximately $300 million dollars over the course of its lifetime.
The Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area is the fourth largest in the United States, with nearly 7 million in residents, after New York, Chicago and Los Angeles. This makes it strategically significant for FCC’s environment business in the US. Under the terms of the contract, FCC will have exclusive rights to all recyclable material.
FCC will construct an automatic sorting plant using the latest technology using modern sorting and classification techniques, including artificial vision, as well as optical and gravimetric sorting equipment. The plant is expected to process thousands of tons of recyclable materials such as paper, cardboard, glass, plastic, metals, and present the reusable materials back to the market.
FCC has extensive experience with building and managing recycling facilities in several countries around the world, with more than 50 facilities currently available and similar to the proposed facility in Dallas.
