Upcoming in 2018

WRED Event - ContaminationFest 2018 - From Consumer to Bin to Truck to MRF

March 29, 2018 | 8:30 AM to 3:45 PM
LeMay Pierce County Refuse | 4111 192nd St E, Tacoma, WA 98446

In the wake of China's National Sword, join us for a swim down the commingled recycle stream as we follow the flow of materials from consumer, to bin, to truck and MRF. Contamination is a reality, but how bad is it, really? How are we going to get it cleaned up? We’ll take some time to see first-hand, how automated collection works, what comes out of the truck and what sorted bales look like. We’ll also see what 0.5% contamination looks like. Let’s have a dialogue with industry experts and leaders to learn what we can do to clean up our act.

This event is sold out.  If you would like to be added to a waiting list in the case of a cancellation, please contact Anne Piacentino at
