Public In-Person Tours


This 75 -minutes in-person public tour will give you an inside look at how recyclables are sorted in our recently upgraded Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) and how compost and garbage are consolidated at the Transfer Station. RethinkWaste Staff will also provide an overview of how to sort your materials properly, a discussion about reuse and reduction tips, and answer questions about hard-to-recycle items.



Individuals and families who want to to see what happens to recyclables, yard trimmings, food scraps, and garbage once they are collected are invited to do an in-person tour at Shoreway Environmental Center.

In-person public tours take place the first Thursday of each month and lasts approximately 75 minutes. Tours are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. Visitors should plan on arriving 10 minutes prior to the start of the tour time. Click here to view our tour requirements prior to your arrival.
