The Dallas City Council has approved a contract with Fomento de Constructions y Contratas (FCC) for building a new material recycling facility. 

The project will cost $20 million and will be at the McCommas Bluf Landfill. The recycling facility will be able to process and market up to 120,000 tons of material annually. The project is expected to start in early 2016 in hopes of starting operations in January 2017. 

This contract announcement comes after the City of Dallas looked at multiple recycling and resource recovery technologies to align with its solid waste management plan. This was done with the assistance of Burns & McDonnell which advised the City of Dallas. The target of the plan is to achieve a 40% recycling rate by 2020.
