History of the Indoor Dump.

Marin Resource Recovery Center’s indoor dump is the size of approximately three football fields. Built in 1987, it provides the citizens of Marin County with a clean, enclosed environment for the disposal of solid waste.

Each month, the Resource Recovery Center processes nearly 3,000 tons of recyclables using state-of-the-art equipment. A customized system of screens, conveyors, blowers, magnets, and hand-sorting separates dirt, sand, metal, wood, concrete, paper, and other materials for recovery. The Resource Recovery Center is perhaps the most sophisticated recycling facility in the country. Visitors from around the world come to observe our state-of-the-art facility.
