Field Trip :: Recycling Sorting Plant

We took a field trip to the recycling sorting plant today. We were given a guided tour and it was very interesting to find out how they sort all the stuff that we put in our blue boxes every two weeks. We were able to tour the facilities, see the conveyor belts, how they made the bales, watch a truck drop off a new load and more. The first building we visited took care of all the fiber products, the newspaper, office paper, cardboard and boxes. The other was where they seperated all the metals and plastics.


  1. Cool! I think I facility in Waterloo does tours as well, but we have not been able to make it to a tour yet.

  2. That's really cool! I didn't know they allowed tours of the recycling facility. Was it a homeschool group that went through?


I ♥ comments! Thank you for stopping by.
