Environmental Education


Did you ever wonder how a landfill works? How do we recycle? When was the first landfill created?

If you would like answers to these or any other waste questions, we can help!  An R-Board staff member can be a guest speaker at your event or in your classroom.  You can go behind the scenes with a landfill tour.  We can bring the landfill to you with our Mobile Landfill Exhibit.  We offer lesson plans for teachers and can answer any of your trashy questions.


Landfill Tours

The landfill is not just a hole in the ground. See what goes on behind the scenes. Free tours of the Regional Landfill are available. Tours last about an hour and are held rain or shine, so participants should dress appropriately. R-Board staff will work with you to tailor your tour to the specific age group or time constraints. Landfill tours are offered for ages 8 and up. 

Environmental Education Trailer

Environmental Education Trailer

The environmental education trailer is a mobile exhibit that features recycling, composting, interesting facts about marine debris, and more. The trailer can be reserved for your next community event, school, or neighborhood gathering in the City of Fredericksburg or Stafford County.

Watch the R-Board Environmental Trailer video to see what the trailer has to offer your group. Contact Hope Mikelson at [email protected] or 540-658-8680 to reserve the environmental trailer for your next event.
