The recycling center on Crenshaw Blvd. sorts lots of paper and plastic. It is adjacent to an old landfill that's being converted for future use as a "green space" and is across from Botanical Garden that is already on a former landfill site.
From the 1964 Day Tours book: "An abandoned quarry is used for a dump, euphemistically called a land-fill, for it will be turned into a park when filled."
