Talking Trash: tour of City of Phoenix North Gateway Transfer Station

Talking Trash: that's what 29 members and guests did on the tour of City of Phoenix trash facility. Thanks to Lynn Wood for organizing this tour with our guide Alicia Flores, who entertained us with stories. She educated us about the handling and process of recycling, separation of trash, distribution to their landfills. Also about the usage and resale of recycled recovery items as well as compost and paper shredded bundles.

The official name is North Gateway Transfer Station and Materials Recovery Facility on 30205 N. Black Canyon Hwy in Phoenix.

After the tour was lunch. Lynn Wood reflected, "Our luncheon gathering at Salt Taco Y Tequilla (Shops at Norterra) was a fun gathering and food was delicious."
