Mixed C&D facility opens in L.A.

Downtown Los Angeles is the site of a new, $2.73 million C&D recycling facility operated by Looney Bins. The plant is expected to divert 50,000 tons of C&D from landfills yearly and to provide 75 new skilled and unskilled jobs.

Looney Bins, a member of the Construction Materials Recycling Association, has received a low interest, $2 million loan from the California Integrated Waste Management Board to help start the facility. "The loan enables us to realize our dream of having a state-of-the-art, enclosed C&D recycling facility in downtown Los Angeles," says Looney Bin President Myan Spaccarelli. He adds that the facility will provide needed recycling services and conserve resources and landfill space.

Sorting equipment at the new facility has been supplied by Lubo USA, Stamford, Conn.
