An old Studebaker building is being torn down and recycled to make room for a "new recycling center."
The new facility will be at the corner of Ewing and Franklin on the south side of South Bend.
Construction has already started to build the Green Tech Transfer and Recycling Facility.
The center will take up 33 acres and will cost three and half million dollars.
It is the only center in Northern Indiana that will sort and process the majority of recyclables unlike many other center that only collect some materials.
The facility is on at an old Studebaker site that hadn't been touched in 25 years.
Leaders hope to have the green tech park open to the public by the end of this year.
