   (A)   Recycling Center. A permanent facility designed and used for receiving, separating, storing, converting, baling or processing of non-hazardous recyclable materials that are not intended for disposal. The use may include construction debris recycling or other intensive recycling processes such as chipping and mulching.
      (1)   To ensure compatibility with surrounding uses, screening and buffering around the perimeter of the proposed recycling plant shall be required at the time the facility is constructed.
   (B)   Renewable Energy Facility. A facility that generates renewable energy from sources such as solar, wind, or other systems with a principal use of producing electric, thermal power, or mechanical power.
   (C)   Telecommunication Facility. Any tower, site, building, structure, or other facility whose principal use is to facilitate transmissions for AM/FM radio, television, microwave, and cellular telephone transmission towers, antennae, and accessory equipment and buildings. Specific standards for communication towers are set forth in § 155.310. Facilities in the B-1, B-2 or B-3 districts are only permitted if they are attached to a habitable structure and are completely screened or camouflaged from view. This does not apply to preexisting and unrelated utility structures, such as water towers.
   (D)   Utility, Major. A large-scale utility such as a water or wastewater treatment plant, water tower, electrical generation plant, or transmission facility or any similar use.
   (E)   Utility, Minor. All utility facilities not considered major, including, but not limited to neighborhood-serving facilities such as pump stations, telephone exchanges, lift stations, and stormwater detention facilities, or any similar use.
   (F)   Waste Service. A facility that generally receives solid or liquid wastes from others for transfer to another location, collects sanitary waste or manufactures a product from the composting of organic material. Wasterelated service shall include the following: animal waste processing; landfill, incinerator; manufacture and production of goods from composting organic material; outdoor recycle processing center; outdoor storage of recyclable material, including construction material; transfer station; or any similar use.
