USA: New Sunset Park Material Recovery Facility Opens

New York City officials recently announced the opening of the Sunset Park Material Recovery Facility, which will serve as the principal processing facility for all of New York City’s curbside residential recyclables.

With the capacity to process 1,000 tons of recyclables every day, this marks the first time in the history that the city has a facility located in the five boroughs that can process and recycle all of its metal, glass and plastic.

Moffatt & Nichol developed plans, specifications and construction cost estimates for the pile-supported relieving platform, king pile bulkhead, mooring pier, enclosed barge unloading facility finger pier, fender system and dredging.

The firm also collaborated with the owner, New York City Economic Development Corporation, to develop a design both sensitive to the existing aquatic life and functional to meet the operational needs of the client, SIMS Metal Management.
