Milwaukee Recycling Plant Tour
June 23, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
This free tour of the new Materials Recycling Facility is part of the Recycle It! series of events promoted by the WHNA Green Committee. Join the committee on Tuesday, June 23, 2015 (6:00PM – 7:30PM) to see the completed retrofit of the City of Milwaukee recycling facility in the Menomonee Valley that was developed in partnership with Waukesha County. Participants should meet at the Keep Greater Milwaukee Beautiful (KGMB) building. The Green Committee will provide some light snacks.
See how your recyclables are processed and prepared for the next recycling steps. As a bonus, we will also see some of the products that are made from recycled materials and renewable energy sources at the site.
The staff of Keep Greater Milwaukee Beautiful will conduct the tour and is free of cost for Milwaukee residents thanks to a grant from the City of Milwaukee. Please note that the tour may be restricted to the observation room based on plant operating conditions at the time of the tour.
