Description of facility and application
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 obtaining a Metro license. Due to recent changes to Metro Code (effective Jan. 1, 2019), WestRock Recycling is now required to obtain a license from Metro.
WestRock Recycling is owned and operated by WestRock CP LLC., a waste management company headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia. This site has operated as a recycling facility under various ownership since 1993, and WestRock has operated this site since 2015
According the the city of Portland, the proposed use is allowed.
AUTHORIZATION UPDATE: January 3, 2019
Metro issued a solid waste facility license renewal to WestRock Recycling.
