MSW Presentation + landfills & MRFs
Here is the slide deck from today’s (2/1/11) lesson:
And, since we touched on modern sanitary landfills and recycling, here are two great resources:
1. Visit HowStuffWorks.com to see a modern sanitary landfill being built. Gotta know the basic design for the AP Exam.
2. Since we can’t visit the local one this year, here is a short animated intro on a materials recovery facility (MRF). This is where things go AFTER you put them in the recycling bin. You can find out more about how each material is reclaimed at: http://www.explorethecycle.com/
*If you don’t already know, here is the link to what the Charlotte-Mecklenburg local government wants you to put in/leave out of your recycling bins.
