In 2011, Hamtramck Recycling, a family owned green recycling business located in Hamtramck, Michigan, encountered increased demand from local manufacturers interested in recycling their waste rather than depositing it in landfills. To accommodate the increased demand and increase capacity, Hamtramck sought to purchase and renovate an old waste-transfer building. With support from the State of Michigan and $4 million in NMTC financing provided by the Michigan Magnet Fund, a Michigan based Community Development Entity, Hamtramck Recycling transformed a vacant building into a new, state-of-the-art, 32,000 square foot recycling and transfer center. The facility, which was operational in 2013, sorts out paper, plastics, Styrofoam and other office waste products, as well as light industrial metals, and turns them around into usable recycled materials. The modernized recycling facility also includes an assembly line that permits the use of such technology as overhead cameras to examine truck contents upon entry to price its recyclable mix, and uses automated equipment to permit easier sorting and separation of materials. Hamtramck Recycling also built a new transfer station and tailor it to accommodate Industrial Dry Waste, recovering recyclable materials from the waste stream.
