The multi-million upgrade at Pier 96 is impressive and provides an educational and exciting tour! It is especially noteworthy that the upgrade was fit into, and around, the old system while it was operating. It has resulted in reduced residual, including capturing small pieces of material, such as shredded paper and more glass, and also has the ability to recover more material types like cartons, film plastic and textiles. The upgrade was designed based on the successful secondary MRF R&D efforts in LA that were recovering more than half of the SF residual that was sent to their facility.
Attendees MUST carpool, as there will only be 5 parking spots for our group; registrants will receive directions to the facility once we have a full group of tour participants; carpooling will be facilitated by group email coordination via NCRA administrative staff. Closed-toe shoes are REQUIRED.
