Recology CleanScapes welcomed the Shoreline Council of Neighborhoods to tour its material recovery center (MRF) this spring. Tours at the MRF include a presentation in the Recology education center followed by an up close look at the wide array of technology Recology uses to sort recyclables. Tour attendees learn about the local waste system, what is recyclable and compostable, and where materials go once they leave the curb. Shoreline residents discussed how they as a community could work towards a “world without waste” and attendees were challenged to spread the word about what they learned. One attendee commented, “Who knew that non-garbage items could be handled so efficiently?!” Interested in a tour for your community group? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
