IT3/HWC Conference Technical Tour
Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County
Tuesday, January 26, 2021 • 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
The tour begins at the SWA’s LEED Platinum Education Center, where attendees' recycling skills will be tested with an interactive learning experience. Attendees will have the opportunity to walk across SWA's 500-foot Sky Bridge to Renewable Energy Facility 2 (state-of-the-art Waste to Energy Plant), where SWA turns garbage into electricity. There, attendees will witness the awe-inspiring sight of a massive claw grabbing up to nine tons of garbage at a time.
The tour continues on board the SWA bus for a rolling tour through the Renewable Energy Park. Attendees will view Renewable Energy Facility 1, two Sanitary Landfills, the Home Chemical and Recycling Center, and the southern entrance to the SWA Greenway Trail System. The tour ends at SWA's Recovered Materials Processing Facility, where attendees will see the innovative technology and manpower that sorts 100,000 tons of recycling each year.
Online registration coming soon. All attendees must sign a liability waiver in advance to participate.
