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.
