 800 VISIT MICHIGAN'S ONLY COMMERCIAL HAZARDOUS WASTE TREATMENT
 AND DISPOSAL FACILITY OPEN HOUSE
 YPSILANTI, Mich., Sept. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Eight hundred adults and children attended the Fourth Annual ENVOTECH Open House for the public at Michigan's only commercial hazardous waste landfill facility in Van Buren Township, Sunday, Sept. 27.
 The open house was hosted by ENVOTECH, which is also proposing the ENVOTECH Resource Center hazardous waste landfill disposal and incineration facilities in Augusta Township.
 The open house was held at Wayne Disposal, Inc.'s (WDI) and ENVOTECH Management Services, Inc.'s (EMSI) site on North I-94 Service Drive between Rawsonville and Belleville roads. WDI and EMSI, companies related to ENVOTECH, already employ many of the modern technologies that will be used to monitor and dispose of hazardous waste at the ENVOTECH Resource Center.
 Visitors toured the innovative energy recovery and hydroponic farming operations in addition to the hazardous waste processing, treatment and disposal facilities.
 "We are excited that so many people took the time to really find out how a modern hazardous waste environmental protection facility operates," said George L. Schutte, ENVOTECH program liaison. "That was the theme of the open house -- come in and look us over -- and they did."
 Guests took guided tours in air-conditioned buses of facilities for WDI; EMSI, a liquid sludge waste treatment and processor; Wayne Energy Recovery, a methane to electricity conversion operation; and Willow Run Farms, Inc., a two-acre hydroponic farm producing specialty herbs and salad greens.
 Guests enjoyed free refreshments, live entertainment, a sample from Willow Run Farms and a display and exhibit tent in addition to the guided tours. Corporate officials and technical staff were on hand to answer questions.
 "The people who visited our site have seen how our related group of companies actually operate and our commitment to protecting Michigan's environment for this generation and many to come," Schutte added. "They saw how advanced technologies are already being used to properly manage all forms of waste and protect the environment."
