An orientation session is followed by a walking tour of the Tipping Floor where waste haulers enter to discharge waste into a large storage pit; the Turbine Generator Room where steam produced by the heat of burning garbage is used to produce electricity: and the Control Room where visitors view the inside of the combustion units via remote camera. The cooling tower and air pollution control equipment are also highlighted. Groups are accepted (up to 60 people) but must also call ahead for reservations. The tour is handicap accessible. Please note any accommodations you need when calling for reservations.
