Each day, the average person creates around four pounds of trash. Once it leaves the curb, have you ever wondered where your trash goes? Now is your chance to find out! Metro Waste Authority is opening Metro Park East Landfill (12181 NE University Avenue in Mitchellville) on Saturday, May 16th from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. for a free driving tour.
Metro Park East is the destination for trash created by metro area residents. See a garbage truck, large equipment and a variety of innovative recycling initiatives up close – all from the comfort of your own vehicle! Guests will gain a better understanding of smart disposal and can even enjoy a scavenger hunt throughout the tour.
Pull the family away from the TV this weekend and take part in this fun, educational opportunity. For more information visit www.WhereItShouldGo.com/MPEtour.
