Tours of the Tuscarora Landfill facility can be arranged for school groups. Tours begin with an educational presentation that can include, but is not limited to:
- Landfill construction
- Electricity from landfill gas/methane
- Leachate collection and treatment
- Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
- Compost and mulch
- Household hazardous waste
- Government authorities
Following the presentation, the tour will go out onsite and see first-hand how solid waste is managed and the steps taken to ensure the environment is protected.
