Here at SlCo Recycling, we understand the importance of environmental education. If we can change the way people think about their trash and illustrate how easy and impactful recycling can be, then we can transform our community for the better.
hope to see the world in a brighter, cleaner light someday, and we hope you do too!

of your group. So whether you're an elementary school, university class, or business office seeking clarity on subjects such as recycling, landfill operation, or waste reduction and sustainability, we're at your service. Free of charge.

Tours are offered Monday - Friday(9 am - 3 pm). Tours typically last 60-90 minutes. We can accomodate
any size group with a minimum of 10 people. Recommended minimum age for participants is 7 years old (or attending the second grade).
Tours are broken into two parts:
Our tour is a driving tour utilizing group vehicles. We do not provide transportation for the driving portion. We ask that your consolidate into one vehicle if possible, or at least as few vehicles as possible. And please remember to save a seat for
your tour guide!
Restroom facilities are available in our education building (where the first portion of the presentation takes place), but not during the 30-minute driving tour.
Typically, tours conclude at the Lee Kay ponds wildlife
area across the street from the landfill. Time allowing, groups will have a change to exit vehicles and visit the gazebo and observation deck, which also makes for a great snack spot!
