Environmental Programs and Awards Garnered by PIER 39

PIER 39 is committed to the preservation of the San Francisco Bay’s natural environment. PIER 39’s recycling efforts helped divert more than three million pounds of waste material from local landfills. Along with cardboard, mixed paper, plastic, glass and aluminum, PIER 39 added an organic/wet garbage composting program for its full-service restaurants. One million pounds of organic material from the restaurants were composted in the program’s first year. PIER 39 recycles 100 percent of its landscaping waste – 57,000 pounds annually – and 1 million pounds of food waste. A portion of this is returned as fully composted material and incorporated back into the soil.

In recognition for its outstanding, wide-range recycling efforts, PIER 39 has received numerous awards, including the State of California’s Waste Reduction Program (WRAP) Award almost every year. Locally, PIER 39 was recognized by Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA), S.F. Department of the Environment and Golden Gate Disposal as the “Most Improved Recycler of the Year” in the 2007 Commercial Recycler of the Year (CORY) award contest.
