Event Description

Visitors will see what happens to the 30 to 50 tons of material that Santa Cruzans place into their blue recycle bins each day. They will observe how in just one week the recycling center staff can bale as much 50 tons of mixed paper, over 20 tons of plastic and about 70 tons of cardboard. Visitors will also see a mountain of scrap metal and learn about the facility’s Household Hazardous waste program and Second Chance Store where materials such as paint, caulking and cleaning products are offered to the public free of charge. Groups are limited to 16 people. Children and youth age 8-18 must be accompanied by an adult. Carpooling is encouraged as parking is limited.
