ecomaine Virtual Tour

Wednesday, January 13, 2021
9:00 am to 10:30 am

Save the date for a private virtual tour of ecomaine's materials recovery facility and waste-to-energy facility on Wednesday, January 13th from 9:00 am to 10:30 am.  Originally scheduled for February, this event has been moved to January to accommodate NRRA staff schedules. 

Although we were unable to hold our popular Fall Bus Tour in 2020 due to the pandemic, we are pleased to offer this virtual tour in lieu of our February Member Operations Marketing meeting.  This live tour will provide municipal members with a behind-the-scenes look at ecomaine's operations at their facilities in Portland, Maine.  

In order to allow for maximum participation by municipal members and NRRA staff, including an opportunity for questions at the end of the tour, we are limiting this event to 40 municipal members.  We will notify municipal members when registration for this special event opens soon.  

For a brief overview of what we'll cover in the tour, you can watch recordings of ecomaine's Recycling Virtual Tour and Waste-to-Energy Virtual Tour (each under 15 minutes).  

ecomaine provides comprehensive, long-term solid waste solutions in a safe, environmentally-friendly, economically sound manner, and is a leader in raising public awareness of sustainable waste management strategies.  ecomaine looks to push waste up the hierarchy as far as possible: reduction of waste generated; reuse of resources; recycling and employing materials back into the marketplace; composting or digestion of organic waste; creating electricity via waste-to-energy; and landfilling as a last resort.
