Simi Valley Landfill Tour

Main-

Landfills are stinky, but this field trip was far from it. Learners spent an hour on a minibus exploring the Simi Valley landfill at the Waste Management facility. They learned how to create green energy from landfill gas for the community. Our learners got an up-close look at the construction and demolition recycling facility where big bulldozers and crushers were in action. They visited the trash area where they were told why it is important to think twice before throwing things away.

The highlight of this trip was the certified Wildlife Habitat Conservation Programs. Learners toured the habitats of barn owls, which help to keep the mice population under control.

At the end of the tour, the guide tested the learners’ knowledge of what can go in a recycling container, and the results were surprising. Each participant got a mini trash can as a souvenir. This trip was a perfect educational field trip for both young and old learners.
