Henson Disposal, which operates a construction and demolition (C&D) recycling facility in Bloomington, Illinois, has received approval to construct a second C&D recycling facility in Urbana, Illinois.

According to a report in The Daily Illini, the company will soon begin construction on a 40,000-square-foot facility. The company will share the property with Southwind RAS, a Bartlett, Illinois-based shingle recycling company. Southwind RAS received permit approval to build a recycling plant from the city of Urbana in December 2013.

According to the newspaper article, Henson Disposal co-owner Tom Kirk was interested in the Champaign-Urbana area because it is not currently being served by a C&D recycler or a local landfill. C&D debris is hauled outside of the area.

During construction of the Urbana facility, Henson will haul debris from Urbana to its Bloomington site to be recycled. The company recycles wood, plastic, vinyl siding, paper, concrete, aggregates, metals and roofing shingles and may begin recycling drywall in the future, the article says.
