CAW staff takes a tour of Waste Management's Davis Street Transfer Station in San Leandro, CA.
This facility sorts garbage for landfilling, residential blue-bin and construction derbis for recycling, and greenwaste for compost, biomass, and landfill cover. Click here for more information on Davis Street.
On September 5, 2007, CAW celebrated its 30th year of recycling policy success. We honored Recycling's "Legislators of the Year" Senator Joe Simitian and Assembly Member Lori Saldaña.
