Landfill Tours Scheduled

Landfill Tours Scheduled

As Earth Day approaches, why not learn about the challenges created by the solid waste generated in our community.
The Washington County Recycling Coordinator will be providing tours of the Forty West Landfill on Saturday, April 12th. Visitors will learn what steps a landfill takes to protect the environment, see how the landfill is constructed, and see numerous recycling activities. The tours will take approximately one and a half hours and are scheduled for 10am, 12pm, and 2pm.
Residents will be able to park their cars at the administrative office located at the entrance to the landfill and a school bus will be provided for transportation.
Residents will need to call the Recycling Coordinator at 240-313-2796 to reserve a seat for a tour prior to April 9th due to limited space on the bus.
Persons with disabilities requiring special accommodations should make their needs known at time of registration.
