We are pleased to invite school and community groups from areas served by Recology CleanScapes to visit our recycling center to learn how paper, plastics, and more are sorted and recycled. This free two hour experience at our state-of-the-art facility in South Seattle will help participants understand the recycling system and how their actions affect the process. Individuals thirteen years of age or older are invited to tour the sorting line where they will hear, see, and smell materials as they travel through a series of conveyor belts and high tech machines. Groups with younger children may visit the facility to experience the recycling center from a bird’s eye view in the safety of our education room.
Public group tours are held quarterly on the third Thursday of the months of January, April, July and October from 11am – 1pm.
Limited private tours for school groups or community organizations are also available (for groups of 10-30 individuals).
