Description of facility and application
Pride Recycling Company, an existing solid waste facility located at 13910 SW Tualatin-Sherwood Road in Sherwood, submitted an application to Metro to renew its franchise for its transfer station to receive garbage and recyclable materials generated within the Metro region for reload and transport to a landfill for disposal or an approved facility for recovery. Your comments on the franchise application are welcome and must be submitted to Metro by 5 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 30, 2019.
Pride Recycling Company is a family-owned and operated business that has collected garbage and recyclable materials from homes and businesses in Sherwood, Tigard, Beaverton and other areas in Washington County since 1986. In 1991, Pride began operation of a solid waste reload and material recovery facility in Sherwood. The facility currently operates under authority of a Metro-issued franchise (No. F-002-08H) to operate a transfer station and material recovery facility to receive putrescible waste (garbage), non-putrescible (dry) waste, recyclable materials, and yard debris. Pride Recycling Company consolidates the garbage into transfer trailers which is then transported primarily to Coffin Butte Landfill near Corvallis, Oregon. The mixed non-putrescible (dry) waste, such as construction and demolition debris, is sorted to recover recyclable materials, yard debris is transported to an approved compost facility, and recyclable materials are transported to approved recovery facilities. The facility property is zoned General Industrial and operation of a transfer station is permitted. The facility holds an Oregon DEQ Solid Waste Disposal Site Permit and manages stormwater in accordance with DEQ guidelines. If the franchise renewal is approved by the Metro Council, the applicant would continue its current operation.
A copy of the franchise application can be downloaded from links below. In the fall of 2019, Metro Council will consider whether to renew this franchise. In addition to submitting written comments during the open comment period, you may provide testimony to the Metro Council at the meeting at which this franchise application will be considered. Once the date of that meeting is set, more information will be provided on this webpage. Metro provides guidelines on how to provide testimony to the Metro Council to ensure your input can be heard.
If approved by the Metro Council, the new franchise will take effect on Jan. 1, 2020, and remain in effect for five years.
