The total investment by Team Gemini is planned to be up to $300 million and will create up to 300 new jobs averaging a yearly salary of $38,000 in Phase 1 over the next three years—not including the more than 500 temporary construction jobs needed to build the project.
While the construction of the entire facility can take up to 4 years to complete, the plan is to have the LRF and COR3 online within 2 years, paving the way for the full build out of the project.
This new relationship between SWACO and Team Gemini will have a positive impact in Central Ohio, creating a synergistic environment that turns MSW in to a valuable economic resource.
SWACO Executive Director, Ronald J. Mills, states that this collaboration marks a historic milestone with sustainability. "This project shows how to take waste handling from a cost center to a revenue-generating center," Mills added. "What we are doing here in Ohio will be seen as a game changer nationally."
Haughn added: “Though we are starting with 25 percent recycling, we have the goal to one day reach close to 100 percent recycling, and eventually mining the landfill for resources while increasing the revenue of SWACO in the process.”
