Bus Tour: ReGen Composites, Emterra
MARR has arranged exclusive tours of two separate sites this year:
Site 1 - ReGen Composites, an innovative new Winnipeg-based company that is manufacturing commercial and industrial products from wood, fibre and plastic wastes, (including many plastics and fibres that have been most challenging to recycle!). The company is growing quickly and is seeking plastics and fibres.
Site 2 – Emterra’s Winnipeg Recycling and Waste Management Centre. Emterra’s recycling plant uses the latest equipment to process both single and multi-stream recycling. Participants will be walked through the entire facility to see how waste packaging and printed papers are separated and sorted back into various categories of recyclable resources.
Nov 7th tour price: MARR Members: $40 per person; Non-Members: $60 per person
Tour buses will load at Best Western Airport Plus (1715 Wellington) at approximately 1pm and will return to the same location sometime around 5pm. Full details and instructions will be sent to registered participants 1-2 weeks before the tour.
- No outside vehicles will be allowed on this tour, you must be on the bus to participate.
- Please also note the tour of the Emterra facility will involve walking up and along industrial stairways and may not be suitable for persons with mobility issues.
Last year the full day of workshops and the tour both filled up fast so don't delay!
