Recyclables Processing Tour

Friday, June 21, 2019

Once mixed recyclable materials are collected from homes and businesses, they are taken to a facility that is specifically designed to sort mixed materials into materials of like-type, so they can be used to create new products. This tour will offer participants a first-hand look inside one of the most state-of-the-art Material Recovery Facilities (MRF) in the United States, where GreenWaste Recovery, Inc. takes the Town’s garbage, recyclables and compostable materials for processing. This tour will demonstrate how garbage, recyclables and compostable materials are all sorted under the same roof, accomplishing incredibly high recycling rates, ultimately diverting more than 95% of recyclables and 75% of garbage away from landfill. To register contact 650-947-2518 or srobustelli@losaltoshills.ca.gov.
