Material Recovery Facility (MRF) Tours
Placer County and Tahoe Truckee Sierra Disposal host free public tours of the Eastern Regional Materials Recovery
Facility (MRF) every year (in 2009, tours were held on Thursday, August 27). The tours allow residents to learn about recycling and to see first hand how waste is processed to recover valuable materials including paper, glass, plastic, wood, yard waste and metals. The recovered materials are sent to other recycling facilities for processing and distribution throughout the world, helping to conserve natural resources.
