  • Information about the Public Recycling Center

Tours are offered on a first-come, first-served basis.


FAQs

Is there a minimum age requirement?

Yes, there is a minimum age requirement of 4 years old. Children ages 4-7 will not be able to walk through the recycling facility for safety reasons. They will, however, be able to enter and stand on a platform that overlooks the facility.

Where do I park?

Coming from Shoreway Road, please enter in Gate 2 with signs for Tour Parking. We have a limited parking lot, but for safety reasons need to keep you and your car in this designated lot. If you arrive and the spots are all filled, please look for an educator in a bright orange vest to get further parking directions. You are not permitted to park anywhere else on site.

Where can I find more information about the tour?

By visiting our website at www.rethinkwaste.org/publictours.
