Facility Tour:  Tour of the Western Placer Waste Management Authority Facility



Western Placer Waste Management Authority (WPWMA) is a regional agency comprised of the Cities of Lincoln, Rocklin, and Roseville and the County of Placer.  They offer recycling and waste disposal services to these communities as well as the City of Auburn and Town of Loomis.  The WPWMA's primary Facility includes a landfill, materials recovery facility (MRF), composting operation, and household hazardous waste management facility.  We'll meet for lunch in a conference room at the Facility, during which we'll see a presentation about the Facility and the various waste management activities conducted on-site.  After the presentation, the MLC will provide vans for a guided tour of the Facility.

This event is organized by the Mother Lode Chapter of the Air and Waste Management Association.  This event may be attended by students and their professors, and interested members and their colleagues.  We welcome representatives of regulatory agencies, academia, industry, community and environmental groups, and the consulting community.
