April 18, 2018 ~ Aaron Curtis opened the doors for a small, but extensive field trip of the Tervita South Taylor facility. Aaron’s enthusiasm and passion for his job was catchy as he explained the operations of the plant. Students were able to watch the plant in action this time, as usually larger field trips require the plant to shut down for tours. It was a great opportunity for students to watch the procedures involved as trucks came and went dropping their waste off for proper processing. Thanks again to Aaron for taking the time to show students yet another opportunity for employment in the area.
