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, where GreenWaste Recovery, Inc. takes the Town’s mixed compostables (gray cart), recyclables (blue cart) and yard trimmings (green cart) materials for processing. This tour will demonstrate how mixed compostables, recyclables and yard trimming materials are all sorted under the same roof, accomplishing high recycling rates, ultimately diverting up to 95% of recyclables and 75% of materials away from landfill.
An email reminder will be sent out closer to each tour date.
