Muskegon Chapter Meeting

11/13/2017 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Kent County Recycling and Education Center

Our tour at the Recycling and Education Center will begin upstairs with a brief history of
waste and background information about the Department of Public Works. After a short
informational video and some basic recycling facts, the tour continues out into the
facility. Participants will be able to witness single-stream recycling as the recyclables
travel along the conveyor belt through disc screens, a magnet, an optical scanner, and
more! After the walking portion of the tour, things will wrap up back in the Education
Center with a focus on where the recyclables go next and what they might become. All
participants on the tour need to wear closed-toe shoes please.

The tour will be worth 1 CEU towards your PE licensure – be sure to sign in.
