People have been burying garbage since humans evolved, but have you ever wondered where your waste goes once thrown into the bin? This three-hour bus tour will give you a peek behind-the-scenes to find out what really happens when you throw your trash away and what “away” really means.
Join I Love A Clean San Diego to better understand how your daily actions impact the Miramar Landfill and the City of San Diego’s goal to reach zero waste by 2040. You will not only learn about the importance of zero waste, but also given the tools on how to get there. Additional stops include the Allan Company Recycling Facility, the Greenery and the Household Hazardous Waste Transfer Facility.
There are only 55 seats available, so book your spot by August 8th to ensure your opportunity to gain valuable knowledge about the Landfill. Seat priority will be given to City of San Diego residents. If you are out of the City limits, you will be placed on a waitlist and informed a few days prior to the tour if seats are available. As a safety precaution, please wear pants and close-toed shoes. A signed waiver will be required at the start of the tour. Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
The bus will pick attendees up in the parking lot at Metro Biosolids Center. Parking is available in the lot. Carpooling is encouraged.
This tour is made possible by the City of San Diego’s Environmental Services Department and facilitated by I Love A Clean San Diego.
