Recycling Facility Tours

One of only a handful of non-profit recycling facilities in the country, Eureka Recycling’s Material Recovery Facility tour program offers an insider’s look at the the buzzing world of recycling. As a zero waste demonstration and lab, touring Eureka Recycling’s Material Recovery Facility shows you how recyclable materials are collected, separated, and then sold — all for the benefit of our community, our planet, and our local economy.
