?Where to take the items that can't go in your household bin
On the tour you will get to see:
The FOGO Processing Facility, where FOGO material is pre-processed to remove contamination.
? The Green Waste Facility, where garden waste is turned into mulch.
♻️ The Materials Recovery Facility (MRF), where recyclables are separated, baled and sold for reuse.
