In an opening press release, the Sunset Park municipal recycling facility announces that it was built to optimize environmental performance with buildings made from 99 percent recycled American made steel and elevated by four feet using a blend of recycled glass and crushed stone from Second Avenue tunnelling operations. Other sustainable strategies include on-site storm-water management and one of the City’s largest solar power installations (600kW), designed, engineered and installed by Solar Energy Systems.
