Tour of Resource Recovery Facility and Composting Facility
Saturday, May 4, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM (EDT)
Join our Solid Waste Advisory Committee on a tour of two facilities:
- First, we'll visit the Resource Recovery Facility to learn about how trash is delivered by rail from the Shady Grove Transfer Station and Processing Facility, how energy from burning the trash is converted to electricity, and our state-of-the-art emissions control technology. Preview the Resource Recovery Facility.
- Then, we will go to the Compost Facility, where leaves and grass are turned into rich compost, marketed as "Leafgro". Preview the Compost Facility.
If registration fills up, please join our waitlist. We will fill open spots as they occur. If you remain on the waitlist, we'll notify you of future tours as they are planned.
