About SA Recycling
(Berths 210-211)Home of the largest metal shredder on the West Coast, SA Recycling is an industry-leading metal recycler with scrap metal recycling, processing, and export operations at the Port of Los Angeles. In addition to its operations at the Port of Los Angeles, which have been in operation since 1962, the company operates more than 60 recycling facilities throughout California, Texas, Arizona, Nevada, Georgia, Tennessee, and Alabama.
In 2017, SA Recycling replaced an older diesel mobile crane with a new mobile, all-electric crane that runs solely on electricity, except for no more than 12 hours per year for standard maintenance. The project was funded in part by a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) $1.3 million Diesel Emissions Reduction Act (DERA) grant to the City of Los Angeles Harbor Department. The remaining cost of the $5 million crane replacement project was funded by SA Recycling, which owns, operates and maintains the crane at the Port. This project is in alignment with EPA’s plan to reduce emissions from diesel fleets and thereby reduce the local air pollution.
