MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) – It’s back! Montgomery officials held a ribbon cutting ceremony Thursday morning to recognize the restarting of a multi-million dollar recycling facility that had sat idle for several years.
City and chamber leaders stood with RePower South executives for the celebration that relaunches what is now the Montgomery Recycling and Recovery Facility, located off the Northern Boulevard.
“This ribbon cutting speaks to our commitment to do what’s right by becoming a green city and a destination known nationally as a leader in recycling, innovation and technology,” Mayor Todd Strange said. “Partnerships mean progress in Montgomery, and thanks to our partnership with RePower South, we are bringing a cost effective, environmentally-friendly and seamless sanitation solution to our residents. Not to mention, this facility will save taxpayer dollars by extending the life of our landfill at no additional cost to our city.”
