Davis Street Transfer Station Master Plan

San Leandro, CA

JRMA is leading the design effort for the multi-phase facility improvements at the Davis Street Recycling and Transfer Station. The three-phase improvement includes a green waste building food waste/organics MRF, and an anaerobic digestion facility to harvest methane as a power source from the composting material. Currently, the food Waste/Ooganics MRF is under construction.. This project is one of the flagship sustainable design efforts by Waste Management and goes beyond LEED with unique green features such as food waste/organics recycling, green waste composting and enough fuel from the anaerobic digestion process to power the entire site. All these uses reduce reliance on landfills and provide high grade compost for market, while part of the process will convert waste to energy. JRMA’s continued sustainable design effort on this project is closely interconnected with the client’s need to continue the ongoing use of the facility, maximize operational efficiency and keep the project within the budget goals associated with an industrial type project.
