Summary: The Clark County Green Schools team has been working hard over the last several months to deliver interesting, high-quality educational materials for students throughout Clark County. We have created a few virtual tours on Google Earth of the West Vancouver Materials Recovery Station and another comprehensive tour that shows where waste goes once it leaves the transfer station. The journey it takes might surprise you! Each tour is narrated and includes videos and quizzes. Students can navigate through all the stops on the tour and learn a bit more about how garbage, recyclables, food and yard waste and hazardous household waste is handled.
