Landfill now accepting Type III Low Hazardous Industrial Waste construction and demolition debris

It's just a matter of time before the facilities volume doubles

Niagara Development has successfully converted the former NewPage Paper Mill disposal facility into a public landfill accepting Type III Low Hazardous Industrial Waste and a full spectrum of construction and demolition debris. Top tier management along with industry best practices assure a long life for this new regional landfill.

Nick Ghere, Vice President and General Manager of Niagara Development, is responsible for the facility overhaul. He has spent the majority of his time working with prospective large scale waste producers, service providers and manufacturers with large waste streams that are taking advantage of the opportunity to utilize this uniquely located landfill. The combination of an approximate 60 year life span, depleting local dump sites and an abundance of local opportunities make this site a great commodity to the surrounding region. Being one of the few Type III Low Hazardous Industrial Waste Landfills in the state creates the ability to offer more economical options to the surrounding states.

"I am very excited about the all the of the interest expressed," says Mr. Ghere. "It's just a matter of time before the facilities volume doubles". Eric Spirtas, Owner of Niagara Development has always been a visionary. "We see this deal as a great opportunity for the Michigan towns of Iron Mountain, Kingsford, Quinnesec and Norway as well as the Wisconsin town of Niagara" says Spirtas. "More business means more jobs and subsequent higher tax for the two state area and entire region."

The former NewPage Paper Mill straddles the Menominee River encompassing 500 acres in Wisconsin and 800 acres in Michigan. Adjacent to the landfill, the property has four free standing buildings equipped with industrial grade electric, gas and water as well as full service indoor rail and docks. A separate 2-story office building has been renovated and is ready for occupancy. Many suitors find the 5 miles of rail and significant transmission services to and from the site, captive waste water treatment, high capacity wells and water intake permits as key for new development.

Other highlights of the property include an untapped 60 million ton Basalt reserve, as well as several established tenant businesses.

Niagara Worldwide LLC acquires, manages, markets and sells repurposed manufacturing sites, chemical plants, mills, and biofuel and biomass power plants across the United States and Europe. In addition, it manages more than two million square feet of warehouse and office space.
