About the Event
Participants will engage in a fun, educational experience as they learn about the Waste-to-Energy process and test their knowledge using a touch screen interactive table-top game. During the program participants will be escorted behind the scenes at the SWA Renewable Energy Facility 2. Depending on the arrangements there may also be a driving tour to see additional facilities such as Renewable Energy Facility 1, Utilities, Maintenance, Landfill, the Greenway Trail System, Bio-Solids, and the Recovered Materials Processing Facility (recycling center). This is an in-depth tour and will be tailored to the group and their interests. Please be prepared to walk approximately the length of 3 football fields. The tour will involve elevator rides and may include walking flights of stairs to access certain areas of the facility. It is required that you wear comfortable closed-toe walking shoes and long pants, we also recommend wearing or bringing a long sleeve shirt. Additional personal protective equipment may be required, including a hard hat, safety vest, protective eyewear, and hearing protection. We encourage you to bring your own reusable water bottle.
This event is free of charge and extremely limited in capacity. If you can not make the even, please let us know so that we can open the waitlist.
