Green Construction: Greens Recycling

Another recycling company that we frequent is Bayview Greenwaste Management company.  They are the epitome of GREEN Recycling and we just love them. As you may know, green waste such as plants, weeds etc., that are the byproducts of our excavation on new projects,  breaks down in our landfills at an accelerated rate (as opposed to other waste) and produce methane gas, which is directly related to depleting our ozone layer.

We at Tamate Landscaping sort thru and gather all of our green waste and bring it to Bayview Greenwaste , which in turn grinds it up in a massive kitchen disposer type of machine and they send it back out as compost to condition the rocky or sandy soil that is so prevalent in San Francisco.  Its really a “triple whammy” green company.  They help reduce methane emissions, keep debris out of our landfills and contribute to a more rich soil, plant growth and photosynthesis, which is our “air scrubber”.   Give them a try!

New Equipment: 2012 F550

Newly added to our landscaping arsenal is a 2012 Ford F550 cab and chassis diesel with a utility body.  Equipped with a 6.7 liter Powerstroke diesel engine and a 6 speed transmission, 4.88 gears, 360 horsepower and turning out 660 ft pounds of torque, this vehicle will pull virtually any load up and down the hills of San Francisco.

2003 Landscape Truck and Trailer

Our 2003 Ford F-350 Diesel proved to be inadequate for pulling our fully loaded trailer which weighs in access of 16,0000 pounds. Hauling this much weight up and down the hills of San Francisco has ruined 2 two new transmissions and is really working the third. Last year, while working on a project in Bernal Heights, we got stuck at the bottom of Elsie Street with a full load of gravel. Time for something heavier.
