Tour of Recycling Facility

  • May 19, 2007 · 9:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Join us for a tour of one of San Diego's recycling facilities to learn more about how recycling works and what happens to your cans and bottles once the recycling truck drives away from your house. An Allan Company representative will be available to show us how the recycling process works and to answer our questions at their facility at 6733 Consolidated Way in San Diego at 9am on Saturday May 19th. The tour will be brief, since we are not allowed to get too close for safety reasons, but this is a great chance to have some of your questions answered and to see how the process works in person. If you have specific questions you would like answered, please post them or send them to me in advance and the foreman will ensure the person giving the tour has the answers. There is a 30 person limit for this tour so please RSVP is you are interested in attending. (Like always, carpooling is encouraged.) Info. about Allan Company:

We currently handle over one million tons of recovered fiber annually both domestically and overseas. As an established leader in the recycling industry for over 40 years, Allan Company's facilities are adept at servicing generators of recovered materials.

    Event was pretty much what Jenean advertised, didn't get up close to the big grinding machines, but that's probably a good thing! Nice to learn about plastic recycling and all the stuff they really can handle. I think more education definitely needed, so many people confused about what's really recyclable and what happens to it.

    I was looking forward to seeing how the people and machines at Allan Company actually sort and package recycled materials. The staff member who spoke with us was very friendly and did mention some interesting points, but nothing that couldn't have been emailed in a one page document. Still, good to think about recycling a bit.
