Tour the KARC this Saturday, July 20
July 15, 2013 -
Find out what happens to your Blue and Grey Box recyclables after they are collected: drop by for a tour of the Kingston Area Recycling Centre (KARC) at 196 Lappan's Lane from 10 a.m. to noon this Saturday, July 20.
"If a thing can be reused or recycled, it has value and is not garbage. A visit to KARC really drives this message home," says Derek Ochej, Public Education Coordinator. He reminds visitors to bring their Household Hazardous Waste items for drop-off when they come for the tour.
The KARC tour offers visitors a behind-the-scenes look at how recyclables are sorted and prepared for market and explains why residents are asked to sort recyclables, what happens to them after they leave the facility, and what they become.
