Landfill Tour Scheduled for Nov. 16

November 6, 2012 | 0 Comments

Take a guided bus tour of Waste Management’s High Acres Landfill to learn about how it was engineered to protect the air, water, soil, and environmental integrity of the surrounding area. The facility features a methane gas renewable energy plant that produces enough energy to power 9,000 homes. A unique workforce of falcons helps to keep the seagull population under control. You’ll also get to see the composting operation to which the University is sending food waste and other organic materials. The tour bus will leave outside of ITS (Rush Rhees Library) at 3 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 16. Email to register.
