Green Energy provided an update Monday on recycling operations at its Highland Park, Michigan facility.
Green Energy purchased a 5-acre parcel of land in Highland Park, Michigan in November 2011 and began preparation of the site to receive construction and demolition waste. The site is cleared and most of the necessary equipment is in place to receive waste material and begin advanced recycling operations to recover valuable materials in the waste stream. Green Energy is working closely with local officials to complete the permitting process and expects to commence full operations within 60 days. When complete, Green Energy's plan is to process 750 tons per day by the end of the third quarter generating annual "tipping fee" revenues of approximately $2,600,000 and significant revenues from recovered recyclable materials.
Additionally, Green Energy has agreed to purchase an adjacent 10-acre parcel to complete the recycling facility. The property is strategically located to make it attractive to locally contracted haulers and the permitting process for acceptance and processing of C&D waste is underway.
Green Energy Renewable Solutions closed at $0.65 on Tuesday.
