Join us for an in-depth tour of the Materials Recovery Facility with a recycling professional to see what happens to your recyclables after they are collected from your cart! With the completion of a retrofit in 2015, recycling processing is completed in a state-of-the-art, single stream facility. Since the machinery is not operating we can get an up close view of the equipment that processes over 68,000 tons of material each year.

Tennis shoes (thick soled, closed toe) must be worn. Tour is appropriate for those 5th grade and up.
