[ARCHIVED] - You're Invited: Cedar Hills Regional Landfill Tour -

Find out where your garbage goes — and learn why King County is a national leader in waste prevention.

To commemorate 50 years of operations at Cedar Hills Regional Landfill, the King County Solid Waste Division invites you to tour the facility, hear from division and county leaders, and enjoy informative displays.

The free event is 10-11:30 a.m. April 23, 2016, when you can learn about where your waste goes.

The celebration also offers the public a chance to see how the landfill’s modern design allows the Solid Waste Division to collect and transmit landfill gas to the onsite BioEnergy Washington plant for processing into renewable energy.

You can also see landfill heavy equipment, and learn how the Solid Waste Division continues to be a national leader in waste prevention, resource recovery and waste disposal.

King County Deputy Executive Fred Jarrett and other leaders will speak about the importance of the landfill to the county’s residents and efforts to combat climate change.

Space is limited to 108 people; reservations are required and must be made by April 18. Children ages 5 and older are welcome if accompanied by an adult.

Parking will be provided at the landfill. Participants will board a King County Metro bus for the guided tour. The buses are wheelchair accessible. To ensure safety, tour participants must wear closed-toe footwear and follow instructions from employees.

To RSVP for the event, or to request accommodations or an interpreter, contact Communications Specialist Anna Kegel via email or at 206-477-1693.
