Event description

Description

Have you ever wondered just what happens to your garbage once you left it out at the curbside for collection? It doesn’t just disappear. Join us on a tour of your local landfill to find out where it all ends up. In addition to touring an active landfill, participants will get to ride through a Waste and Recycling Convenience Center, a Multi-Material Recycling Drop-off Facility, a Household Hazardous Waste Drop-off Facility, ride to the top of a closed landfill, and visit a Landfill Gas-to-Energy Facility. The tour provides Wake County residents, aged eight years and older with the opportunity to learn:

  • Just what happens to their household garbage
  • Where residents can recycle additional household items too large to collect at the curb
  • What common household items are harmful to the environment if placed in the garbage
  • Where residents can get rid of their hazardous household items safely
  • How Wake County is turning household garbage into a renewable energy source
