Orange Coast College (OCC) has decided to lead on environmental conservation efforts from the front. This is after the school announced a recent completion of their recycling facility. Orange Coast College recycling facility is arguably one of the largest of its kind in America. The facility, unlike the previous one, covers around five acres of space and was completed in one year four months at a cost of seven million US dollars.
OCC is no stranger when it comes to environmental conservation services and in particular the recycling part. This school started offering these services more than 40 years ago. With the increasing demand for recycling services, it was only fair to increase its capacity. In addition to the current facility being built on a five-acre piece of land, it has a vehicle parking lot that can accommodate up to 45 vehicles, meeting rooms, office spaces, and shower rooms.
Services offered at OCC recycling plant
With the nature of the OCC plant, the facility offers a wide range of services to the residents of Southern California. Now more than ever, anybody can walk into the facility and drop whatever unwanted equipment they have. The list of products that get recycled is endless but includes aluminum cans, glass containers, metal scrap, plastic containers, and even an assortment of papers ranging from magazines to cardboards.
The good news with this is that you will be compensated for your recycles while at the same time the facility staff ensures you are safe. The compensation is always per-pound basis and will depend on the item you have brought.
While it’s true that you can dispose anything at the facility, there are a number of items that the facility does not allow. For instance, you cannot dispose car batteries, engine oil, boats, chemicals, paints, old furniture, and aluminum cans and plastic bottles that exceed 100 pounds. The OCC recycling plant has an eco-friendly design thus helping conserve energy resources by minimizing wastages.
