The Genesee ARC and the City Youth Bureau Parks program teamed up this summer to offer educational tours at ARC’s new Trash & Recycling facility.

Children from all five city parks program sites signed up to learn about the city’s recycling efforts and how items are reduced, reused and recycled. 

ARC Trash & Recycling Coordinator Mike Smith shared information about recycling seven different types of plastic, as well as tin cans, paper and the number one product recycled at the new facility, cardboard.

A new initiative, called e-recycling was showcased during the tour explaining the NYS law requiring recycling of electronics such as a computers, televisions, cell phones and electronic games.
