Tour the cutting edge Newby Island Resource Recovery Park in San Jose, believed to be the largest recycling facility in the world. The renovation of an existing 80,000 square foot building and addition of a state of the art sorting system and equipment enable the facility to process as much as 420,000 tons of waste per year. The facility houses organics recycling, construction waste recycling and a “Green Energy” generation system and will help us achieve our goal of “zero waste” for homes and businesses. The tour will include the new recycling facility as well as the landfill operation. Lunch and pre-tour lecture, noon – 1 p.m., bus tour 1 – 4 p.m.
