City of Milwaukee & Waukesha County Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) and Recycling Education Center

Sold Out!

Join us for an in-depth tour of the Materials Recovery Facility with a recycling professional to see what happens to your recyclables after they are collected from your cart! With the completion of a retrofit in 2015, recycling processing is completed in a state-of-the-art, single stream facility. Since the machinery is not operating we can get an up close view of the equipment that processes over 68,000 tons of material each year.
