A MESSAGE FROM OUR GENERAL MANAGER
Welcome to the Newby Island Resource Recovery Park Website! Everyone working at Newby Island is dedicated to doing all we can to reduce, reuse and recycle as much material as possible from our facility. Click the play button above to experience “A day in the life of Newby Island” where our goal is to protect today’s environment for a better tomorrow.
Allied Waste’s ownership and operation of the Newby Island Resource Recovery Park (NIRRP) enables our customers to partner with a service provider that imposes the lowest carbon footprint on the surrounding community. 100 percent of material brought to us is processed, re-used or disposed at the NIRRP in San Jose, something no other company can offer. Other waste companies are required to transfer composting and/or residual waste to remote or out of county locations, dramatically impacting the environment. NIRRP houses a Recyclery, Gas-to-Energy Operation, Composting Facility, Construction & Demolition Recycling Facility, Disposal Operation and Allied Waste Services community residential and commercial waste collection company all at the same location.
We believe sustainability depends on how well we protect and preserve our natural resources and educate future generations on environmental stewardship. We are always working to enable NIRRP to continue to respond to the ongoing needs of its customers’ recycling and disposal goals. Our research shows landfill improvements are an essential part of meeting the needs of the Bay Area’s growing economy. The Recyclery and Composting Facility are also ever-evolving to process greater amounts of recyclable and organics materials. I invite you to take a moment to read through this informative website and watch the video to learn more about NIRRP and our proposed project.
