Metro is hosting a community conversation to discuss conditions at and near the WestRock Recycling facility since the issuance of Metro’s six-month license, which took effect Jan. 1, 2019, and to discuss whether any further improvements are needed as Metro considers extending the term of WestRock’s license to Sept. 30, 2023.
The doors will open at 5:30 p.m. Light food will be available and childcare provided (ages 0-8). Please RSVP online to help Metro plan and to arrange for translation services if needed.
WestRock Recycling submitted an application to Metro for a solid waste facility license to receive and sort materials such as paper, plastic and metal for recycling markets. This type of facility was previously exempt from Metro’s licensing requirements. Due to recent changes to Metro Code (effective Jan. 1, 2019), WestRock Recycling is now required to operate under the terms of a solid waste facility license from Metro.
