SUBMITTED BY JOE CAMERO The unveiling of an $10 million expansion of a high diversion material recovery facility (MRF) on May 6, 2014 celebrates the “marriage” of public policy and engineering design to meet CalRecycle’s CalGreen Construction & Demolition (C&D) and Alameda County’s commercial diversion goals. It is the only MRF in the region that meets both requirements. Construction on the expanded MRF began in early January and was completed in late April. It includes upgraded technologies, which increases sorting capacity from 700,000 lbs. per day to 1.6 million lbs. per day, and two separate lines for sorting construction/demolition and dry commercial volumes. Materials less than 8 inches are screened to 2 inches and again to ?-inch fractions. Magnets recover ferrous metal, while optical-sorting technology separates wood and aluminum. Vibratory air separators recover rock and other inert materials. Recovered commodities are then sent to markets and used in WM EarthCare™ landscape products. The Davis Street Resource Recovery Complex is located at 2615 Davis Street in San Leandro. For more information about Waste Management, visit www.wm.com
