Tour of Greenwaste Material Recovery Facility

Greenwaste provides Material Recovery services (trash, recycling and green waste and more) for several communities including San Jose. Their Material Recover Facility was completed in 2008 and we are scheduled to take a tour! The details follow.

    Fascinating and informative tour of the recovery facility. Made me think about our society and the ethics of producing and leaving to others to sort and dispose of our monumental amount of refuse.
