Team Gemini, a sustainable project design and development company based in Orlando, Florida, has entered into an agreement with the Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio to build a landfill receiving facility and materials recovery facility on SWACO property in Grove City, Ohio. The agreement sets the stage for integrating a viable sustainable solution that reduces SWACO’s use of landfills and will eventually eliminate the need for their use by replacing them with a landfill receiving facility (LRF) that works with a waste stream recovery and recycling facility. Team Gemini has been selected by SWACO to build both the LRF and the waste stream recovery facility, which has been dubbed the ‘Center for Resource Recovery and Recycling’ or COR3, in a tract of land south of Ohio State Route 665 in Grove City, OH.
The LRF will be owned and operated by SWACO, while the COR3 facility will be owned and operated by Team Gemini and both buildings will have a combined area of over 185,000 Square feet. Initially, the MRF will be able to process up to 2,000 tons per day, with plans to process the entire waste stream in the future – thus achieving nearly 100 percent recycling of the MSW received from the LRF. The total investment by Team Gemini is planned to be up to $300 million and will create up to 300 new jobs over the next three years, aside from more than 500 temporary construction jobs. While the construction of the entire facility can take up to 4 years to complete, the plan is to have the LRF and COR3 online within 2 years, paving the way for the full build out of the project.
