2014-2015 SLWRP Transfer Station Field Trips

Over 350 tons of recyclable materials are processed every day at the Davis St. Transfer StationOver 350 tons of recyclable materials are processed every day at the Davis St. Transfer Station

SLWRP schools are eligible to participate in StopWaste's FREE field trip program to local transfer stations.

All field trips include a comprehensive walking tour of the Davis Street or Fremont Transfer Station and education on the 4Rs (reduce, reuse, recycle and rot/compost).  Pre and post-field trip activities and resources will be provided to help support and extend classroom learning. Morning and afternoon options are available.

Chaperones and students should be prepared to wear hard hats, safety vests, and safety glasses as required by transfer station operators. Transfer stations are dirty places, students may wish to avoid wearing their best clothes.  Students will need to wear closed-toe shoes and long pants to tour the facility.

How to Schedule Your Field Trip

Field trips for SLWRP schools are available December-May at the Davis Street Transfer Station and November, February and March at the Fremont Recycling and Transfer Station.
