Tours and Presentations

What happens to your recyclables and yard waste after you put them in your curbside carts?

NRWS is in the forefront of recycling and our customers are largely responsible for that. We invite your organization, business, or school to take a tour and see our recycling facility first-hand. We are also available for presentations about the economic and environmental benefits of recycling, composting, and general environmental education– we’ll modify our presentation to make it age appropriate.
