Metro Recycling Facility

Eager to see what happens to your recyclables after they leave the curb? We are excited to offer two great options!

  • Open Hours: Join us Mondays from 9-11 AM and Tuesdays from 1-3 PM for open hours at our Education Center. During this time, we welcome all ages to explore the exhibit, play in our early childhood area, and watch the sorting happen in real time through large windows overlooking the sorting floor. This experience is primarily self-guided and does not include access to the sorting floor.  
  • Virtual Tours: Check out our virtual tour page for links to interactive virtual tours of our facilities!
