Hennepin County Recycling Facility Expansion

TKDA expanded two recycling facilities to meet the needs of increasingly popular programs

Due to a significant increase in use, Hennepin County needed to evaluate and expand two recycling facilities. TKDA worked with the County to plan, design, and deliver the necessary expansion for these facilities to meet the needs of growing populations.

At the Bloomington Recycling Center, our team conducted planning, design, permitting, and construction administration for a 5,000 SF expansion that addressed future storage needs. The expansion included adding a truck dock and a new area to improve the bulking and packing of materials collected by the County. We evaluated the Brooklyn Park Transfer Station facility’s operation and developed recommendations to meet the needs of varied operations within the County’s budget. TKDA implemented the design and construction of the expansion, including re-roofing and improvements to the facility’s air handling system and traffic flow.
