Pacific Recycling Solutions commits support to Resilience Fund

Since the massive wildfires swept through Sonoma County and surrounding areas, Pacific Recycling Solutions (PRS) has been accepting concrete, metal and vehicles from fire debris sites at its facilities in Windsor, California. While the metal is transported off-site for recycling, the concrete has been stockpiled at Pruitt Industrial Park.

Over 100,000 tons of concrete came across the scales, large pieces that were once patios, driveways and foundations of homes and buildings since leveled by the October wildfires. This material is about to get a second life.

PRS has begun to crush and grind this material into Recycled Class II Aggregate Base Rock that is compliant with CalTrans and City of Santa Rosa specifications. The rock can be used in multiple projects associated with the rebuild including roads, driveways, sidewalks and building pads.

In an effort to buoy the recovery through repurposed material and financial support, PRS is donating up to $100,000 from base rock sales to the Sonoma County Resilience Fund.

The recycled base rock can be a part of the rebuild effort and the donation will support those survivors needing to rebuild.

Pacific Recycling Solutions is key partner in California wildfire response

As a result of the devastating wildfires in October, disaster authorities estimate over 1,000,000 tons of fire debris has been generated in Sonoma County alone.

Pacific Recycling Solutions (PRS) has mobilized multiple fire debris sites at Pruitt Industrial Park, which is located in Windsor and close to many of the neighborhoods leveled by the fire

This rapid response effort includes assembling scale houses, installing scales, securing temporary power, renting and purchasing heavy equipment, installing systems equipment, investing in technology and hiring personnel. In less than two weeks after the fires were 100% contained, PRS began accepting recoverable fire debris such as concrete, metal and burnt vehicles from burn sites. Hazardous waste is contained and hauled out of county, and remaining debris that cannot be recycled is transported to the County landfill.

Working with contractors deployed by the Army Corps of Engineers as well as County and Town officials, PRS is proud to play a small but critical role in the comprehensive, regional disaster response. Incoming material will be recycled by PRS with the concrete specifically earmarked for crushing and return to local projects as part of the rebuild effort.

Clearlake targets blight through universal service

Clearlake was one of the few cities in the State not to require garbage collection service. Not only did that put the City at risk of being fined by the State for potentially not meeting state requirements for landfill diversion of recycling, Clearlake also was experiencing the detrimental visible results evidenced by numerous illegal garbage dump sites throughout the city.

Working with Clearlake Waste Solutions, the city will implement universal solid waste collection service on April 1, 2018. Universal collection should greatly reduce the number of illegal dump sites and, therefore, the number of garbage and debris related code enforcement actions. This will help meet the goal of making Clearlake a visibly cleaner city, and allowing Code Enforcement to focus on other issues critical to the health of the community.

C&S Waste Solutions now an energy neutral site

C&S Waste Solutions of California (C&S) recently installed solar energy panels at their California headquarters in Ukiah. C&S selected West Coast Solar to deploy a fully-integrated solar and storage project on the rooftops of buildings.

Estimated to generate 652.368 kwh per year, the new panels will generate enough power to classify the Ukiah campus as an “energy neutral site.” All power needed to operate the facilities will be generated by the new solar array.

“The decision to install solar was good for the environment as well as good business,” said C&S Waste Solutions of California President, Dave Carroll. “As a waste management company that is committed to sustainability, it only made sense to build that into our operational infrastructure.”

C&S Waste Solutions of California is a leading provider of comprehensive solid waste and recycling services throughout Lake and Mendocino Counties.
