Sustainival: Materials Recovery Facility Virtual Tour
Tue 10/13 • 12PM - 1PM PDT
Do you wonder what happens to your recyclables once picked up from your home or from UCLA? Well, they are actually delivered to what is called a Materials Recovery Facility, or a MRF for short, where people and a series of conveyor belts, screens, magnets, robots, and optical sorters sort and divide items by their material type. Hear from Brian Hunter, Assistant Operations Manager for Athens’ Sun Valley MRF, on what happens to recyclables once they are collected! This event is in partnership with UCLA's Department of Custodial and Grounds.
