San Francisco to get Tomra recycling center

tomra-reverse-vending-machine-150x1081San Francisco will soon see a Tomra of North America recycling center capable of handling 5 million beverage containers per month.

I wrote a blog post a few months ago on Tomra´s  amazingly innovative reverse vending machines (http://3.ly/sK0). Consumers will be able to drop off containers from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., seven days a week.

Consumers can recycle beverage containers in San Francisco at 15 locations, down from 35 sites three years ago, said Frank Canelo, Bay Area operations manager for Tomra Pacific. This is due to grocery stores moving out of the city, forcing drop-off centers on their properties to close.

Tomra Pacific Inc. is a unit of Tomra of North America.
