Finger Lakes Institute will sponsor a tour of a landfill in Stanley, beginning at 1 p.m. Friday, July 14.
The group will gather at the Institute office, on the campus of Hobart and William Smith Colleges, and then carpool to the site, off Routes 5&20, west of Geneva, near Stanley, for a tour of the area’s waste management system, operated by Casella Waste Systems, Inc.
Participants will see the workings of the landfill, gas energy plant, single-stream recycling facility and leachate pond. Discussions with Stephen Klemann, the facility's recycling marketing manager, will help the group identify where the wastestream leads after household trash leaves the curbside.
This event is free and open to the public; registration is requested by calling (315) 781-4382 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
