Name: Community Landfill Tour
Date: September 26, 2019
Time: 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM PDT
Event Description:
Did you know the Knott Landfill is 110 feet deep? Have you seen the methane flare? Do you know how long it takes a head of lettuce to decompose in the landfill? Come join The Environmental Center and Rethink Waste Project staff in partnership with Deschutes County Department of Solid Waste for a behind-the-scenes tour of what happens to your trash after it leaves the curb. See Knott Landfill's trash pit, check out Deschutes Recycling, tour the transfer station, and understand the composting facility. Seeing where our waste goes will impact your decisions in the future and help you think twice about purchases. This is a unique opportunity; the landfill isn't always open to the public for tours.
