Edmonton Waste Management Field Trip
This past September Terra Informers Tasmia Nishat and Amanda Rooney took a trip to the Edmonton Waste Management Center. The Edmonton Waste Management Center is well known throughout Canada as a leading innovator in the business of dealing with municipal waste. The Center is able to divert 50% of the city’s residential waste from the landfill every year. In this piece we join a group on their tour of the Center and it’s facilities. Free tours of the facility are available to the public, every Friday morning at 9am and every Friday afternoon at 12:30pm. The tour is 2 hours long. Reservations are required. Call 780-496-6879.
