Resource Recovery Park

An example of a Resource Recover Park is Monterey Regional Waste Management District (MRWMD) Regional Environmental Park in Marina, CA,

The Monterey Resource Recovery (RR) Park was developed over the past decade by adding innovative reuse, recycling, and composting activities to an existing regional landfill. The District limits the site to compatible facilities that use recycled materials as feedstock.

  • The Last Chance Mercantile resale facility
  • Private contractors provide composting and C&D recycling services
  • The District sells low-cost landscaping supplies made from recycled wood and yard waste at a retail facility onsite.
  • The District also contracts with a company to process C&D materials onsite.

The District designed their facilities so people are encouraged to drop off their recyclable materials and reusable products before they pay tipping fees to dispose of wastes in the landfill. This creates a powerful and immediate economic incentive!

CIWMB Innovations

A resource recovery (RR) park is a new development in recycling. In its broadest sense, it is the colocation of reuse, recycling, compost processing, manufacturing, and retail businesses in a central facility. The public can bring all their wastes and recoverable materials to this facility at one time.
