El Paso Environmental Services Department Confederate Citizen Collection StationCity of El Paso El Paso, Texas
The City of El Paso asked PSC to design, bid and oversee construction of a Solid Waste Citizen Collection Station, named for the street it’s on — Confederate Drive. The station has brightly colored accents and honeycomb-like symmetrical bays. One of the more visually pleasing recycling/waste centers in the city, it provides residents with a convenient place to take recyclables and trash.
PSC’s design improvements and site layout will save time and frustration. Before, vehicles would unload waste from their vehicles, and trash would empty into the bins, some of which would inevitably miss the Dumpsters. The metal channels are designed to now minimize spillage and allow the placement of the Dumpsters perfectly without any damage to the retaining wall.
The project also saved money by redesigning electrical requirements more properly based on the size of the station.
