The Waste Authority offers to host onsite tours of our facility for boy and girl scout troops, community groups, school groups, and many others. Children who come for an onsite tour of our facility get the full experience.
However, due to the pandemic shut down and on-site renovations, we will not be hosting tours for the remainder of the year.
We would start the day by giving the group an educational presentation on waste management, waste reduction, and recycling. The discussion is informative, fun, hands-on, and filled with numerous examples of recycled products. Immediately following the presentation we would take the kids to our recycling tent, which stores all our recycled commodities.
We demonstrate the actual dumping of the commodities into a tractor trailer, which will be shipped to market the very next day. Lastly, the group would head back to our classroom for a question and answer session. We would then pass out a goodie bag, made from recycled garbage bags and filled with recycled treats.
