Riviera Beach developing
standards for scrap metal recycling firms looking to open facilities in the

Following significant opposition from residents earlier this month, the Riviera
Beach, Fla., Planning and Zoning Board has tabled proposed regulations for metal
recycling firms looking to open yards in the city.

The issue came to light when two scrap metal firms sought to open facilities in
the city. The two are Trademark Metals Recycling and Three Brothers.

While the board tabled the measure, they called for staff members to develop new
criteria that companies need to abide by if they seek to open a facility in the

Draft regulations include requirements that the facility be located on at least
two acres; there needs to be engineered concrete; an oil/water separator system
to limit groundwater contamination need to be included; all processing, loading,
unloading and storage needs to be performed indoors; and the operation needs to
be at least 1,000 feet from any residents.

Additionally, the city would put limits on the company’s hours or operations,
and the material handled could not see its chemistry change through processes
such as melting.

While the zoning board staff hopes to have a revised policy in place within the
next several months, a spokesman for the city says that there is a pretty
significant divide between proponents and opponents of the scrap metal yards.
One the staff completes the revised policy the Planning and Zoning Board will
review the information and could recommend further changes. After the Planning
Board signs off on the standards the City Council will have to weigh on whether
or not to take the recommendations and incorporate them into their decision
making process
