Recycle Central by Norcal Waste Systems Inc., billed as "the most modern recycling facility in the United States," opened last week on San Francisco's Pier 96. The 200,000-square-foot plant is capable of sorting and baling up to 2,100 tons of recyclables a day. Recyclables in the $38 million facility are separated using a combination of specialized equipment and hand sorting. San Francisco's Board of Supervisors has set a goal of achieving 75 percent recycling citywide by 2010.
