The Waste Management Open House is a free educational event that provides insight on how High Acres Landfill operates from construction and design to renewable energy production.  Highlights of the event are landfill tours by bus, kid-friendly games, WM trucks and equipment on display, and prizes.  At information booths, you’ll find entities that work in conjunction with the landfill including engineers, contractors, consultants, regulators, vendors and elected officials. Community partners, such as the Fairport Lions Club and Macedon Center Fire Department and many others help make this annual event a community wide success. 

The WM Open House will be Thursday July 27, 2017 from 3pm - 7pm at High Acres Landfill, 425 Perinton Parkway, Fairport NY 14450. Visit our website at http://highacreslandfill.wm.com/facility/open-house.jsp or call (585)223-6132 for more information.


This year we will be featuring our composting program at the open house.  Organic materials- like food and yard trimmings- comprise approximately 40% of the US waste stream and WM is a leader in leveraging new technologies to extract economic and environmental value form these materials. High Acres is one of WM’s 43 composting sites in North America. At High Acres, we compost 12 million pounds of leaves and over 600,000 pounds of food each year, diverting valuable resources from the landfill for upcycling into soil amendments. Increasing soil organic matter with compost builds healthier soil and plants and can also reduce the need for fertilizers and pesticides. Each attendee will receive a free bag of High Acres Compost!


The Open House is perfect for all ages and we encourage you to come explore our facility at this free community event.
