Seagate Development Group and Southwest Waste Services recently held a groundbreaking for a new 4.5-acre facility off Rockhill Road in Fort Myers.
“We want to thank Southwest Waste for their outstanding dedication to our community, especially in the wake of hurricane Ian,” said Matt Price, CEO and partner of Seagate Development Group. “We are honored to partner with them to design and construct their new state-of-the-art facility servicing our growing Southwest Florida market.”
Southwest Waste Services is a waste, hauling, recycling, and disposal company serving markets from Bradenton to Marco Island in seven counties.
The main Fort Myers facility will include a 4,500 sq. ft. mixed-use building – for offices, dispatching, and the company’s training and skills development program. The site also includes a 4.5-acre concrete slab staging-area for multi-use trucks, dumpsters, and associated equipment. A 12-station fueling yard with 20,000-gallon gas capacity and 6,500-gallon diesel capacity will also be designed and constructed.
Earth Tech Enterprises has already completed a large portion of the site-work that includes filling the area with crushed stone. The massive slab is scheduled to be poured over the next thirty days. Turnover is slated for early 2024.
