SCS Engineers was awarded a grant from the City and County of San Francisco to design and implement a comprehensive diversion program for the San Francisco War Memorial and Performing Arts Center. Tasks involved:
The San Francisco War Memorial & Performing Arts Center already had an informal recycling program at the various Performing Arts facilities. Recommendations for improvement included developing a consistent program, purchasing equipment, training staff regarding recycling procedures and implementing a formal diversion program.
Designing and implementing a comprehensive diversion program were successful throughout these facilities. The recycling program was incorporated in March 2004. The San Francisco War Memorial and Performing Arts Center has already seen a reduction in disposal costs without any increase in labor.
