Development of a waste recycling and disposal facility
The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) is redeveloping the Connecticut Solid Waste System Project (CSWSP), which is currently operating the CSWS Resource Recovery Facility (RRF), the MIRA/ReCommunity Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) and various waste transfer stations in the area. The site has been operational since 1988, but is approaching the end of its lifespan and therefore needs upgrading or replacing.
Last month, DEEP selected Sacyr Rooney Recovery Team to modernise the MRF, which will involve the refurbishment of the power block facility and construction of new sorting lines at the waste processing facility.
