The City of Airdrie, Waste and Recycling Services provides schools, homes and community groups with educational opportunities that teach sustainable waste management behaviour that can help reduction and diversion efforts.
Waste and Recycling Services provides tours of the Eastside Recycle Depot, providing residents with a behind the scenes look at Airdrie's diversion programs.
It is recommended that classes and community groups receive the in-class waste and recycling presentation before touring the depot. This presentation covers the 3 Rs, how landfills work, and why we want to divert waste.
Contact the education coordinator to arrange a visit or presentation for your school, business or community group.
Due to safety reasons, tours are only available when the depot is closed to the public. (Winter - Mondays and Tuesdays, Summer - Mondays. Please contact the Education Coordinator for availability).
