BOMA San Francisco's Energy & Environment Committee Members Tour Recology's Recycling Center and Transfer Station

BOMA San Francisco Members:

Working closely with Recology, San Francisco's primary recycling company, the City and County of San Francisco recently achieved 77 percent landfill diversion rates, surpassing the goal of 75 percent landfill diversion by 2010 and setting national recycling rate records, the highest of any city in the United States.   

Members of BOMA San Francisco's Energy & Environment Committee toured Recology's Recycling Center on  Pier 96 and Transfer Station located a short distance away on September 23, 2010 to witness firsthand how Recology prevents the City's recyclables, compost material and hazardous waste from ending up in a landfill.  It was a truly rewarding experience!  BOMA San Francisco would like to thank the team members at Recology for the tour and for the delicious "Lunch at the Dump."  More information on how Recology works to achieve the 77 percent landfill diversion rate--including an Artist In Residence Program--can be found by clicking on the following links:

We would also like to thank Bauers Worldwide Transportation for providing the tour transportation for BOMA San Francisco members.
