Environmental Programs and Awards Garnered by PIER 39
PIER 39 is committed to the preservation and conservation of the San Francisco Bay’s natural environment by encouraging, creating and supporting ecological education, responsible consumption, development of renewable energy sources and addressing environmental issues. PIER 39’s recycling efforts help divert more than six million pounds of waste material from local landfills each year. Along with cardboard, mixed paper, plastic, glass and aluminum, PIER 39 offers an organic/wet garbage composting program for its full-service restaurants, resulting in more than two million pounds of food waste recycled annually.
