    ACUA opens its doors to thousands of students and family visitors each year to give the public a first-hand look at how waste is disposed of in Atlantic County.  Each day, tons of trash, recycling, yard waste, and millions of gallons of wastewater end up at our facilities for processing. Through public education and outreach, we aim to bring awareness to the waste we generate in our homes, schools, and offices, and the ways in which we dispose it. We miss hosting our spring tours and events in person, so we’ve made these important lessons available online!
