In 2002, CWS partnered with the City of San Jose’s largest recyclables collector to process material picked up through the city’s residential curbside program. CWS’ San Jose plant is permitted to receive up to 530 tons daily of material from this single-stream program. In 2006, the San Jose City Council awarded CWS the franchise to both collect and process approximately 157,000 of the city’s single-family curbside set-outs starting in July, 2007.
