I'd like to mention that I'm giving tours at ReCommunity Beacon, where all the recyclables for Dutchess County are processed. If you're interested in taking a tour, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org! Tours are free, and can be scheduled whenever I'm available and the plant is open. Groups at least 8 people large but no larger than 30 are acceptable.
Great info on their website about what's recyclable, along with an interactive MRF to play with. http://www.recommunity.com/education.
Special thanks to Kathy Raye O'Connor from the League of Women Voters for the first two photos, taken this past June.
