An article posted on Waste Dive on April 8, 2016 by Arlene Karidis titled ‘Ohio squashes $100M recycling facility deal with Team Gemini’ informed us of the following: “The Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio (SWACO) has canceled a $100M initiative that would have brought a new recycling facility and a waste-to-energy site to Franklin County. Team Gemini, a Florida-based outfit, who was to build the facility, reportedly defaulted on rent and has suspended the project.

The plan, in the works for three years and slated for completion in June, called for Team Gemini to receive and buy recyclables from SWACO, sell them, and send the balance to a landfill. In addition to the rent problem, there were other concerns including the feasibility on this size or scale. Ty Marsh, SWACO’s executive director, says that SWACO has taken possession of the property and is working to figure out a plan.

Deals are made and deals fall through, especially with capital-intensive projects dependent on tough recycling markets. Even existing MRFs are shutting down—including those owned and operated by industry giants like Waste Management. This has been an industry trend for over three years, with devalued materials and higher operating costs driving the plant shut downs. In Ohio, Team Gemini couldn’t raise the money to build the large facility. Mr. Marsh further said that the failure of the Gemini project in no way diminishes interest in leveraging the waste that’s generated in Franklin County for greater economic opportunity. SWACO will continue to work to extend the Franklin County landfill’s life without expanding its size—a goal that the Authority set fairly recently, but now may have trouble achieving.” Additional details on this issue are available at this link.
