Recycling Center -Materials Recovery Facility
Laredo Solid Waste Recycling Division coordinates tours of the Landfill and Recycling Center. Interested citizens, students, and/or groups get to see how the landfill is operated to meet federal, state, and local regulations. Groups also learn how the disposal dells at the landfill are constructed to manage the waste appropriately. The Materials Recovery Facility is where the recycling materials are sorted and prepared for marketing to end-user manufacturers.
