Plano Recycling Center Tour and Optional Lunch (10/27/07)
Posted by youngsierrans on September 20, 2007
Please join the Young Sierrans for a guided tour of the City of Plano’s Allied Waste Services Recycling Center (AWSRC). This facility unveiled state-of-the-art recycling technology earlier this year. Among the innovations incorporated into the recycling facility is computer-controlled infrared technology that recognizes and separates various types of plastics without human intervention. Materials processed at this site are shipped to more than 100 mills across the globe.
Please RSVP by October 24th to the Evite or to Peter’s/Young Sierrans’ (firstname.lastname@example.org) email address. The optional lunch will be held at either Kelly’s Eastside or the Fillmore Pub following the tour. All are welcome; you need not be a Sierra Club member to attend.
Date: Saturday, October 27th, 2007
Location: AWSRC = 4200 E 14th St, 75074 (just East of Los Rios Blvd, South side). Kelly’s Eastside or Fillmore Pub. Both restaurants are located in downtown Plano (E 15th St and K Ave, 75074), which is less than a 10 minute drive from the AWSRC. We’ll decide after the tour.
