Topekans tour recycle facility for Earth Day

In celebration of Earth Day, people could tour an area recycling facility.

Keep America Beautiful Topeka and Shawnee County and Waste Management held an open house of the Rolling Meadows Materials Recovery facility Tuesday.

For two hours the community could take a tour of the 40 thousand square foot facility and find out what happens to their recyclables after they leave the curb.

Since the facility opened in December of 2012, 34 million pounds of recyclable materials have been sorted.
