Adventures at the Materials Recovery Facility
Platt Rd, Ann Arbor

A group of 12 Elderwise members enjoyed a special tour of the Materials Recovery Facility, on Thursday, October 16, 2014.

The tour, led by MRF and Ecology Center
Staff, discussed the core principles for educating communities toward environmentally sustainable waste management – Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle.

Participants on the tour learned how the site operates and how more than 100 tons of mixed paper, metal and glass are received, sorted, processed, ‘packaged’, and shipped out for reuse.

“After looking though the photographs I had taken during the tour, I decided to do some recycling myself! The ‘wall art’ on the left is the result.”


Joel plans to donate the finished canvas to the MRF Facility in appreciation of their efforts to educate the public on this very important issue.
