[GreenYes] Re: LEED certified recycling centers?

I recall when I was researching toxic incinerator fly ash that the LACSD had a "green building" at one of its landfill's where they were dumping the fly ash.  It was the materials recovery center at Peunte Hills in LA.  Kind of a laugh-dump lots of ash and put a small green building on top!  
 I'm not sure if it ever was LEED certified but you could check with them directly.
When I google it it appears that Dan Costello, at HDR, dcostello@no.address worked on it as well as other green  transfer stations, 
They state the following on the LACSD about the PH recovery station:
"Green Building Design - In addition to designing the facility to blend in with surrounding land uses, environmentally friendly design features and materials were used during construction. High efficiency air conditioning systems and lighting, installation of over 500 skylights, and use of occupancy sensors minimizes electricity use. Reclaimed water is used for site irrigation and in employee restrooms to reduce potable water use. Recycled materials were used throughout the project from structural and reinforcing steel to water closet partitions, carpeting, insulation, ceiling tiles and car parking lot wheel bumpers."

Subject: [GreenYes] LEED certified recycling centers?

Hi everyone
My company is helping the recycling center at Naval Base San Diego become a LEED certified building.  Its a small building that houses offices and the operations are outside of the building.  Are there any existing recycling centers that are LEED certified?
