Portland, OR (February 23, 2023 ) JRMA (J. R. Miller & Associates), a leading architectural, engineering, and planning firm specializing in the design of solid waste and recycling transfer stations, materials recovery facilities (MRFs), and anaerobic digestion/biogas plants (AD), is pleases to announce that they have been awarded a contract by the City of Tacoma, Washington to prepare a facility master plan for a 235-acre municipal site.
