Lunch Meeting - Facility Tour - Spokane Materials and Recycling Technology (SMaRT) Center
Wednesday, June 06, 2018, 12:00 AM - 1:00 PM PST
Category: Events

Have you ever wondered what happens to all that paper, plastic, metal and glass that we through into our recycling bins?

Opened in 2012, the Spokane Materials and Recycling Technology (SMaRT) Center processes recyclable material from across eastern Washington, northern Idaho, and southern British Columbia; separating back out all those materials that we mix together and producing bales of commodities ready to be re-made into products that we use every day.  You’ll see a circular economy “factory” in action, deploying the latest in sorting technology like eddy currents and optical sorters.

Box lunches will be catered to the facility.
