Recycling center eyed for former Pa. industrial site

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - A Shippensburg, Pa., recycling company has proposed using a site across from Cinetic Landis Grinding Corp., the former Landis Tool Co., for its operations.

Engineering documents in the hands of the Franklin County (Pa.) Planning Commission show a recycling center as a reuse of the former Foster plant on Sixth Street.

Tri-State Recycling has proposed the facility be used to buy, process and ship steel and aluminum, Borough Engineer Kevin Grubbs said.

This week, preliminary plans went before the Waynesboro Planning Commission, which was supportive of sketch plans submitted earlier this year.

The site between Ringgold and Walnut streets is zoned industrial, so the proposal is an acceptable use within the zoning ordinance, Grubbs said.

"They're not going to be taking anything like vehicles," he said.

The company would use its own trucks to haul materials from the site, and Grubbs doesn't feel they would further burden borough streets.
