Only 18 Spots Available on Bus Tour; Participants Must RSVP by April 10
Have you ever wondered what happens after the City of Durham picks up your curbside recycling cart? Thanks to another tour arrangement, you now have chance to find out.
For a behind-the-scenes look at what happens once your recyclables are collected, the City of Durham Solid Waste Management Department is offering a free bus tour to the Sonoco Recycling Facility in Raleigh on Friday, April 11. The bus tour will depart at 9 a.m. from the City’s Solid Waste Management Department, located at 1833 Camden Avenue, and return to Durham around noon. Participants will receive a guided tour of Sonoco Recycling’s state-of-the-art facility followed by a question-and-answer session with City staff and Sonoco representatives.
Only 18 seats are available on the bus tour and participants must be 12 years of age or older. Children under the age of 18 must also be accompanied by an adult and all participants must sign a waiver, arrive in closed-toe shoes, and wear safety glasses and vests that will be provided by Sonoco Recycling.
To reserve a seat on the bus tour, contact Waste Reduction Coordinator Larrisha McGill with the City’s Solid Waste Management Department by Thursday, April 10 by email at Larrisha.McGill@DurhamNC.gov. Participants should provide their name, phone number, and an email address.
