C&D recycler of the year recognized

Los Angeles, CA— The best recycler in America of construction and demolition debris is located in Los Angeles. Downtown Diversion has been named the top mixed Construction & Demolition Debris Recycling Facility in the nation by the Construction Materials Recycling Association, which announced the honor at its 2006 annual meeting in Miami, Florida.

The company has diverted more than 200,000 tons of brick, wood, asphalt, concrete, drywall, cardboard, scrap metal, and other items, since opening in April, 2004 from landfills. Together with its sister company, Looney Bins, an award winning hauling company, Downtown Diversion has helped dozens of local jurisdictions in their efforts to meet State-mandated waste diversion goals of at least 50 percent.

Downtown Diversion is located just east of downtown Los Angeles and has created 50 new jobs in the last year and a half. The company has obtained one of the highest recycling rates (76 percent) of the 10 facilities under the City of Los Angeles’ Certified C&D Processor’s Program. The recycler is also a previous recipient of a low-interest-rate business loan from the State of California’s Integrated Waste Management Board and its Recycling Market Development Zone.

In the Los Angeles area, where recycling capacity is limited and restricted by historically lower landfill tipping fees, Downtown Diversion was established to respond to a huge need for construction and demolition debris diversion.
