2013 NRRA Fall Bus Tour- October 9th, 2013
The NRRA Fall Bus tour was really informative and an adventure to boot! After the flat tire got fixed, we headed out to The Harvey Recycling Campus in Westborough, MA; and as you can from just these few pictures, we got quite the tour. Since 1911 the Harvey family has been dedicated to recycling everything they could, and it showed throughout all of the facilities and the conduct of the staff on hand. Our deepest appreciation to Paul Degnan and the entire Harvey family for their dedication to recycling and their top-notch hospitality!
