GEORGETOWN, Ohio—Aug. 15, 2012—What happens to trash after it leaves your curb? Brown County residents will have the opportunity to learn that answer and much more at Rumpke’s Brown County Landfill Open House on Saturday, Aug. 25, 2012, 10 a.m.-1 p.m.
Annually, Rumpke invites the public to its landfill located at 9427 Beyers Rd., Georgetown, to spend the day learning about landfill construction, daily operations and the safeguards in place to protect the health and safety of the public, employees and the environment.
Visitors will be treated to a tour of the landfill from the comfort of a bus at the following times:
• 10:15 a.m.
• 11:15 a.m.
• 12:15 p.m.
To help visitors gain a better understanding on how Rumpke prepares the landfill for trash, a controlled blast will occur at 11:30 a.m. Visitors who want to watch the blast should plan on attending the 11:15 a.m. landfill tour.
“We want to give our visitors the opportunity to learn and ask any questions they may have about Rumpke,” said Todd Rumpke, vice president of Rumpke’s Southeast market. “We hope that our visitors have fun and learn more about our operations and the environmental safeguards in place at our site.”
A family-friendly event, the open house includes games and activities for the kids. The Adams Brown Recycling Center will have their mobile education unit onsite to educate visitors on the County’s recycling program. Brown County Soil and Water will also host a booth at the event to discuss conservation and composting. The day includes a free lunch, complete with hamburgers or hot dogs and ice cream.
