Recycling Facility Tours

One of only a handful of nonprofit recyclers in the country, the Eureka Recycling facility offers an insider’s look at the the buzzing world of recycling. As a zero waste demonstration and lab, touring Eureka’s MRF (pronounced “merf”) shows you how recyclable materials are collected, separated, and then sold in the Twin Cities.

Eureka offers weekly public tours of our recycling facility, every Wednesday at 9am. Tour reservations are required. Public tours are booked on a first come, first served basis and limited to 10 attendees.
