September Green Building Tour: Sims Recycling Plant
September 11, 2017
GreenHomeNYC INVITES YOU TO TOUR:
THE SIMS MUNICIPAL RECYCLING PLANTJoin GreenHomeNYC for an afternoon tour of the Sims Recycling Plant. Not only does the plant processes nearly 20,000 tons of waste per month, but does so in a state-of-the-art facility made of almost nothing but recycled steel. The plant is housed atop an 11-acre peer on what was once a NYPD impound lot. On site you’ll find a 600 kW photovoltaic installation, NYC’s first commercial size wind turbine, a stormwater management system that utilizes bioswales and a retention pond, flood-proof buildings supported by recycled glass and crushed rock as well as artificial reef habitats for aquatic life. Come see this award-winning facility for yourself!
