Our Educational Programs
At Ann Arbor's Materials Recovery Facility, often called the MRF, we give visitors the opportunity to get up close and personal with recycling through discussion, hands-on activities, and a tour of the facility floor. We offer weekday school and group visits and monthly Saturday open houses from September-June through a partnership with the City of Ann Arbor.
Our weekday school programs offer learners with a variety of ages and interest levels the opportunity to learn a bit more about recycling and solid waste management. Weekday programs can be scheduled Monday-Friday from 8am-5pm September-June, and must be prearranged.

We're currently BOOKED for this (2015-2016) academic year. If you're interested in visiting, please join us for one of our monthly Open Houses!
One Saturday a month from September-June, from 10am-noon, the Materials Recovery Facility opens its doors for a special open house event. These open house events allow families, scout groups, and individuals an opportunity to learn about where recyclables go in Ann Arbor. Each open house event includes a recycling-related craft or activity, and tour of the recycling facility floor.
