Metal Building Details: Decorative Accents & Loading Docks

The building side facing the highway is broken up with vertical decorative accents giving the building curb appeal.

The metal building includes five, large overhead doors for trucks delivering commingled materials to easily access the tipping floor. Baled products are loaded out of ten loading docks.

We are excited to provide single stream recycling services to the Twin Cities and greater Minnesota and [to] be an active part of increasing recycling rates and diverting more materials from landfills.
