What: Recology CleanScapes Tour
Event Details: We will go on a behind the scenes tour of the facilities followed by a discussion of what we saw.
About Recology CleanScapes: Recology CleanScapes began operations in October 1997 (as CleanScapes) providing exterior cleaning and maintenance for Seattle's Historic Pioneer Square District. In October 2011, CleanScapes merged with San Francisco-based and employee-owned Recology in order to enhance our waste zero capacity. Recology is a 90-year old company, a pioneer in waste reduction and recovery, and one of the largest operators of material recovery and organics processing facilities in the western United States.

Where to Park/Meet and Other Information: Parking can be limited, we suggest carpooling if at all possible. Please park at the facility as near to the “Recology” sign as you can. Please do not park across the street, you’ll likely be towed. Enter the building at the top of the ADA ramp.
This building has a secure entrance. Zach Spengler, the Safety Manager, will be there to let you in. We will meet upstairs in the education center for a brief safety introduction and to issue required safety gear (hard hat, safety vest and safety glasses.) The tour will begin at approximately 10:15. You must be able bodied (there is no ADA access to the catwalks) and over 16 years old. A liability waiver will need to be signed by all prior to entering the plant. Zach Spengler will lead the tour along with local plant management.
Close toed shoes and long pants are required. Heels and flowing garments (scarves, flowing blouses) are not allowed as they present an entanglement/trip hazard when walking along the machinery.
