The award-winning Wilders Grove Solid Waste Services Facility was constructed on a portion of the 260-acre City-owned parcel that includes the former Wilders Grove Landfill and the City’s solid waste transfer facility. The Solid Waste Services Facility, completed in March 2012, is LEED Platinum certified. It reduces energy consumption by more than 40 percent using renewable geothermal energy, LED lighting, solar photo voltaic panels, and a web-based building control system. Recycled building materials were incorporated throughout construction of the facility and nearly 95 percent of construction waste was diverted from landfills. Wilders Grove is home to the department’s administrative offices and most operations functions.
