Construction of the Household Chemicals and Recycling Facility cost $3.8 million. Funding for the project came from the following sources:
Before being transformed into the Household Chemicals and Computer Recycling Facility, the site was a animal incinerator operated by the Department of Streets & Sanitation. The incinerator ceased operations around 1998. Afterward, it was used to store city vehicles. In 2003, DOE initiated plans to convert the facility. Construction began in September 2005. The total building footprint is approximately 24,000 square feet.
