Facility Recycles 2,100 Tons
Recycle Central, a 200,000 square-foot facility, officially
opened March 5, 2003. San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown and Norcal Waste
Systems, Inc. President Mike Sangiacomo officiated at the opening and
threw the switch to power up the $38 million plant, which is permitted
to sort and bale up to 2,100 tons of recyclables a day.
Recycle Central is located on Pier 96 in San Francisco's Bay View District
and brings the most effective mechanical systems for sorting recyclables
under one roof. Recyclables in this 200,000-square-foot plant are separated
using a combination of specialized equipment and hand sorting. Sorted
materials are baled and loaded into cargo containers for shipment to paper
mills, glass plants and manufac-turing facilities that produce new consumer
goods from yesterday's discards.
San Francisco's recycling program makes recycling easy and convenient.
People simply place paper, bottles and cans together in a blue cart. No
more sorting paper from bottles and cans at home or work. Instead, recyclables
are separated at Recycle Central.
San Francisco's Board of Supervisors has set a goal of achieving 75 percent
recycling citywide by 2010. Recycle Central provides the industrial sorting
systems necessary for San Francisco to process its own recyclables and
divert hundreds of thousands of tons of recyclable materials from landfills.
