Waste and recycling operators need clean, efficient and low cost buildings to achieve operational, environmental and budget goals. Tension Fabric Structures (TFS) provide the solution at an affordable cost, delivering effective and efficient workspace, convenience and versatility, whatever the use.

Tension fabric buildings are a great waste management industry building solution for:

  • Waste sorting and processing facilities
  • Recycling facilities space for sorting, pick lines, storage, transfer stations, conveyor systems
  • Composting and biomass processing facilities - inner liner available
  • Equipment and vehicle storage - extend life of equipment
  • Add on structure to existing facility for extra processing capacity

  • No project too big. Smallest is 48' x 50'.

Improve Performance for Waste Management Environmental Standards

The sturdy fabric structure’s enclosed indoor space helps isolate waste and recyclables from the open air and waterways. TFS can help meet environmental control standards:

  • Contain odors and moisture
  • Isolate hazardous wastes
  • Reduce loss and contamination from effects of wind and rain
  • Reduce pests such scavenging birds
  • Aluminum alloy frame does not degrade or rust like steel
  • Fabric is treated to resist mold and UV rays

The Answer to Better Waste Processing Operations Facilities

TFS are customizable and versatile building solutions that come in a variety of sizes and are customizable for almost any need. These structures are open span, with no internal columns or wires to impede processing and storage space. All weather and climate-controllable, with options for ventilation and heating and cooling the interior, your operations won’t be interrupted due to rain or snow, or slowed by heat.
