A Colorado recycling plant is considering moving to a new recycling facility that has been under construction for nearly a year.
The plant, which will begin operation in 2020, has been shut down for the last several months because of severe drought conditions.
It’s not yet clear how long the plant will be shut down, but the plant is expected to close sometime this summer.
A spokesperson for the plant told the Denver Post that the plant’s new facility would have a lower carbon footprint and would offer cleaner water.
The facility, which is also being built in the nearby community of Fairfield, is expected be completed by the end of 2018.
The Colorado Department of Revenue has not yet made a decision on whether the new recycling plant will open.
However, according to the Colorado Department Of Revenue website, the department is working with the Colorado Recycling Association to identify sites for future recycling plants.
The agency is also exploring other options for new recycling facilities.
