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
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.
