PITTSBURGH An Idaho recycler is seeking permission to open a new scrapyard in the state.
The Twin Falls Planning and Zoning Commission will hold a public hearing Jan. 23 on United Metals Recycling LLCs request for a special-use permit for 2.4 acres zoned for industrial use. The site, which is next to a rail spur, has a 15,000-square-foot building equipped with overhead cranes that is earmarked for the recycling operation.
Caldwell-based United Metals, which has facilities in Boise, Gooding and Mountain Home, is a joint venture of United Metal & Scrap Inc. and Schnitzer Steel Industries Inc. Neither could be reached for comment.
