CVSan is opening 2013 registration to Castro Valley residents and business owners to attend a free tour of the Davis Street Transfer Station (DSTS) in San Leandro on September 20th.
DSTS processes and sorts 4,000 tons of materials a day with 4 state-of-the-art processing facilities, including a brand new Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certified organics building, single stream materials recovery facility that houses a high-tech optical sorter which uses infrared light and manual sorters that separate materials with precision and speed.
Most attendees find the 3 hour tour very interesting and can’t wait to walk through the processing facilities and ask those “Where do I put this?” questions of DSTS and CVSan staff and learn what happens to their organics, recycling, and garbage once it leaves the curb.
For more information please visit www.cvsan.org/dststour. Please note this is the only tour CVSan is offering and registration is limited.
To reduce vehicle emissions and make the tour more enjoyable, CVSan provides transportation to the facility free of charge.
