To meet the increase in recycling volume, Waste Management will fully fund an Ecocenter. Therefore, an expanded facility is needed to meet the needs of the community. During the construction of the Ecocenter, Waste Management estimates there will be approximately 200 temporary jobs created during the construction phase.
This facility will be called the Ecocenter, and it will be located at the current Commercial Row Transfer Station site. The Ecocenter will serve as a one-stop destination for our community’s environmental needs. The planned Ecocenter will include a community drop-off location for green waste, electronic waste, medical waste, and household hazardous waste.
The Transfer Station will be located within the Ecocenter, which will continue to be open to our commercial and residential customers. City of Reno residential Waste Management customers, who are current with their bill, may dispose of one standard pick-up truck with municipal solid waste four times a year at no cost. Customers may utilize the service during normal business hours.
