Modernization of NY recycling plant approved

Brookfield Resource Management, a recycling company serving the New York and Chicago metropolitan markets, recently received site-plan approval for planned improvements at its Cortlandt, New York, recycling facility.

The approved site work includes significant re-grading for improved traffic flow, the introduction of impervious surfaces for environmentally sound operations, the build-out of a stormwater control system and improved fencing and landscaping along the property line to alleviate any potential visual impacts. The Montrose plant has been operating as a scrap metal recycling facility since early 2009.

Brookfield has made significant investments at the Cortlandt recycling facility, including the land purchase, cleanup costs and site improvements. The nine-acre Cortlandt facility will eventually employ ten people.

Brookfield purchased the Cortlandt location in February 2009 to expand its service area into Putnam County and southern Dutchess County. The facility provides a safe and reliable way for companies and individuals to recycle end-of-life vehicles, appliances, metals and other recyclable materials.
