Join University students and employees for a guided bus tour of Waste Management’s High Acres Landfill. This local facility features a methane gas renewable energy plant that produces enough energy to power 9,000 homes.
Friday, November 17, from 1:00 – 3:00p.m.
The tour bus leaves from the back of Rush Rhees Library at 1:00 PM and returns at approximately 3:00 PM. The tour is open to anyone but seating is limited. During the tour, we will:
- learn how the landfill is engineered to protect the air, water, soil, and environmental integrity of the surrounding area
- meet the landfill’s kettle of falcons (yes, predatory birds! 🦅) that help naturally control the seagull population
- get an inside look at the composting operation where the University sends food waste and organic materials
