The Green Machine
The Green Machine is our traveling display used to teach about recycling and taking care of our environment. It can be seen at local fairs and festivals. The Green Machine is also available to come to your event or school to accompany a presentation from our Education Coordinator!

We welcome the public to schedule a tour of our Georgetown facility throughout the year! Begin with a discussion about recycling and why it's important. Then proceed to the buying area where you will get to see items we purchase, hopefully watch aluminum cans take a ride on the conveyor belt, and get the whole group weighed on our large item scale! After that, continue on the tour to the tipping and sorting area to see the process recyclables take after they are collected from curbside or the drop-boxes. End the tour with a trip to the Glass reFactory and learn how we take recycled glass bottles, jars, and jugs and turn them into beautiful sun-catchers.
Call today to schedule your tour! 937-378-3431 extension 104
