AMP Robotics Site and Operational Plans

AMP Robotics Site and Operational Plans
Posted on 06/20/2022
During a public meeting on Monday, June 20, the Pleasant Prairie Plan Commission provisionally approved a Conditional Use Permit that includes Site and Operational Plans for the petitioner, Andrew Trump, agent for AMP Robotics Corporation. The company plans to use the site for a secondary sortation facility to process recyclable materials from a primary material recovery facility, including paper, plastics, and metals. The new location is in an existing building at 9501 80th Avenue in LakeView Corporate Park. 

The project site will install specialized equipment that AMP Robotics will use to sort the recyclable materials delivered to the facility in enclosed trucks. The location will be a secondary recycling facility, there will be no outside storage, and the facility will not accept recyclables from the public. Materials could include recyclables discarded from specific manufacturing processes; however, most materials received at the site will come from a primary materials recovery facility that has already processed the materials. Recyclables will primarily consist of newspapers, magazines, cardboard boxes, plastic bottles, tin cans, and aluminum beverage containers.

"The automated technology AMP Robotics is bringing to Pleasant Prairie will aid the global recycling efforts and help recover discarded materials," explained Jean Werbie-Harris, Community Development Director. "The company is known for its advancement in technology that brings speed and accuracy to the recycling industry. The Village staff looks forward to seeing the company succeed in Pleasant Prairie." 

The company anticipates hiring 25 local operational positions, working three shifts, and proposes being functional in late fall 2022. AMP Robotics is a technology company headquartered in Louisville, Colorado that identifies and sorts valuable materials that otherwise would be discarded. The company has three similar sortation facilities in Denver, Atlanta, and Cleveland. AMP has a mission to enable a world without waste and is focusing on developing technologies that combine artificial intelligence, machine learning, and robotics to bring efficiency to the recycling industry.
