Bay Area recycling centers struggle to survive

Published Tuesday July 26

As recycling redemption centers continue to close around the state, the remaining Bay Area locations are struggling to keep up with demand, leaving residents looking to cash in on recyclables with a dwindling number of options.

The value of plastic, glass and aluminum has decreased, forcing several redemption centers to shut their doors, nontheless, despite a state subsidy program designed to help them weather market downturns.

That puts pressure on the existing centers, which are struggling to meet the demand with little funds.

Frederick Arjo, owner of Martin’s Recycling in Gilroy, stated his company’s profits started taking a hit from the reduced scrap prices about 8 or 9 months ago.
