Recycling center is rallying tonight

The Haight-Asbury Neighborhood Recycling Center will brainstorm Tuesday night on how to derail a looming eviction notice from The City after 36 years of operation. 

The Recreation and Park Commission on Thursday is scheduled to vote on initial designs for a proposal to fill the space in Golden Gate Park next to Kezar Stadium with community garden plots, which have a history of being in high demand.

The swap, according Rec and Park documents, is supported by several big-name park advocates such as Isabel Wade, founder of nonprofit Neighborhood Parks council, several city officials and several Golden Gate Park groups.

On the other hand, Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, The City’s chapter of the Sierra Club and a handful of other park advocates are not happy.

The commission, however, is not voting on the fate of the lease because park staff does not need their consent to issue a thirty-day written advance notice, according to the City Attorney’s Office.

So HANC and other advocates plan to hold a community meeting tonight to answer any questions on behalf of their 10-person team who recycles 5 percent of The City’s waste.

It’s at 7 p.m. at St. John of God at 5th Ave. and Irving Street.
