Description of facility and application
CORE Recycling submitted an application to Metro for a new solid waste facility license to operate a facility that receives and processes construction and demolition debris to recover recyclable materials. The facility is also proposing to accept and process clean wood waste for delivery to mills for use as boiler fuel. CORE Recycling currently operates a similar facility located at 5726 NE 109th Ave, and has applied for Metro authorization to relocate current operations from the existing site at NE 109th Ave to the site at NE 138th Ave. CORE Recycling has held a Metro license at NE 109th Ave since 2011, and has been operational at that location since 2013 when construction was completed.
According to city of Portland, the proposed use is allowed.
