Students can visit a transfer station for trash, see a recycling drop-off area, and learn about McMRF-the county's REUSE facility all in one spot- the South Solid Waste District Campus in Moraine.

 

The recycling drop-off area collects a variety of recyclables, including cans, paper, motor oil, paint and electronics.  Students can see how it's important to follow directions and sort materials according to how their collected. Recycle Canopy
