What Happens After I Drop Off My Recyclable Material?
After garbage is dropped off at the San Martin Transfer Station, it is transported to a landfill. Recyclables such as paper, cardboard, cans, bottles, and metal are sent to a Material Recovery Facility (MRF). This facility sorts, bales, and then sells the material so it can be recycled and made into new products. Clean yard waste is transported to South Valley Organics, a compost facility located at Pacheco Pass Landfill. This facility processes yard waste into compost.
