Hall set to study prospect of new multimillion-dollar recycling center
Hall County inmates sort through recyclables on April 21 at the Hall County Recycling Center. Hall County is exploring a new, automated recycling center that would be able to handle 25 to 35 tons of recyclables each hour — more than 12 times the current rate.
Hall County is exploring a new, multimillion-dollar recycling center at the Candler Road Landfill. With more garbage than it can handle at the current recycling center on Chestnut Street, Hall County Public Works is proposing a new facility that will boost both the volume and variety of recyclable materials in the county. Hall County Solid Waste Director Johnnie Vickers said an up-to-date facility would be a “win-win” for Hall County and its taxpayers because it would bring in more revenue from the sale of recyclables and save space in the landfill. The first step to a new facility is a $64,660 contract with engineering firm CDM Smith to do a feasibility study on the new plant, which is on track to be approved by the Hall County Board of Commissioners on Thursday.
