Meridian Waste announced the opening of its newest Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) located at 205 Scattergood Drive, NW, Christiansburg, Va. The facility is named Blue Ridge MRF. The Company successfully merged two Virginia Department of Environmental Quality permits for older Materials Recovery Facilities (MRFs), Blue Ridge Disposal PBR 104 and Resource Management Group PBR 565, respectively, into one permit and built the new facility under the requirements of the PBR 104 permit number. The beneficial result was to improve operational efficiencies and noticeably improve aesthetics. The new building is significantly larger incorporating a number of safety and efficiency improvements. Such improvements include:

 

  • A larger floor allowing for greater and safer separation of recyclable and non-recyclable materials,
  • A more accessible entrance and exit for customer vehicular traffic,
  • A drive through pit for easier loading of materials into tractors trailers,
  • A litter collection program including enhanced fencing and manual collection, and
  • A leachate collections system and state-of-the-art storm water system.

 

“Opening this new Materials Recovery Facility has been one of my primary goals since joining Meridian Waste two years ago,” stated Ashleigh Garnes, General Manager, and local Blacksburg resident. “ I had the opportunity to be part of the Meridian Waste team upon the Company’s entry into this market in 2018. Our team realized there was a dire need for a secondary disposal and recycling option to manage the community’s growing waste and recycling challenges,” she said. “We know by recycling valuable materials, we’re creating a cleaner environment for the New River Valley region for generations to come. Our entire Christiansburg team looks forward to servicing our existing and new customers with an unfailing commitment to quality care and fair rates.”
