On Tuesday the West Bend Plan Commission will hold a pair of public hearings to address a one-year review and consideration of a conditional use permit which allows a solid waste collection and recycling center at 2230 Stonebridge Circle.
The applicant is Bryan K. Stokes with Quincy Recycle Paper, Inc., in Quincy, Illinois.
The second public hearing will be for a one-year review and consideration of a conditional use permit which allows a solid waste collection, recycling center and retail sales associated with the business at 133 Oak Street.
The applicant is James Moss owner of 5R Processors, LTD from Ladysmith, Wisconsin.
5R Processors has been “temporarily closed” since late last year. Below is the story I broke Oct. 8, 2015.
The Plan Commission meeting gets underway Tuesday, Jan. 5 at 6 p.m. in the common council chambers at West Bend City Hall.
Temporary closure for local recycler Oct. 8, 2015 by Judy Steffes: 5R Processors Ltd., a recycling company located in the former Praefke Brake & Supply Corp. on Oak Street in West Bend, has closed temporarily.
“We did order them to stop operations about two weeks ago due to some code violations,” city administrator T.J. Justice said. “We’ve met with them since that time and we’re hoping they come within compliance so they can open their doors.”
Last December, 5R Processors Ltd. received a conditional use permit to being recycling large electronic appliances at 133 Oak St.
The company, headquartered in Ladysmith, Wis., planned to hire up to 50 employees.
Calls to Jim Moss, owner of 5R Processors, were not returned.
