Once trash is collected from the curb or emptied from the wastebasket at work, most probably do not give it another thought. But Metro Waste Authority knows where nearly 2,000 tons of trash goes every day – roughly 18 percent of the state's annual waste.
Metro Waste Authority invites the public to take a tour of our state-of-the-art landfill in eastern Polk County. On the tour, learn how, with engineering and science, the garbage is managed each day in an environmentally sound way. Also, discover how the landfill provides electricity for thousands of area homes.
The bus tour is approximately 90 minutes. Tour dates are June 14 and June 29. Registration is now open at whereitshouldgo.com.
