Marin Resource Recovery Center

Got extra stuff that cannot be donated or picked up curbside by Marin Sanitary Service? Doing some remodeling or landscaping? Bring it to Marin Resource Recovery Center (MRRC)! All materials disposed of in this facility are sorted using state-of-the-art equipment to retrieve all recyclable materials.

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.

When you take your materials here, you can rest assured they are going to be recycled if at all possible.
