Resource Recovery Group Canning Vale Centre Tour

About this event

Have you ever wondered what happens at a Recycling Facility 🤷‍♀️♻️🤷‍♂️ ?!

Join us for a tour of the Resource Recovery Group's Canning Vale Centre on Global Recycling Day ♻️🌏!

The tour will begin with a short presentation discussing:

♻️ The lifecycle of waste.

🗑 What waste goes in which bin and common contaminants.

🧨What to do with items that can't go in your household bins.

We will then commence a tour of the site. On the tour you will get to see:

♻️ The Materials Recovery Facility (MRF), where recyclables are separated, baled and sold for reuse.

🌱 The Green Waste Facility, where garden waste is turned into mulch.

🍎 The Waste Composting Facility, so you can learn how the general waste bin was turned into compost and what now happens with Food Organics Garden Organics (FOGO) materials.

The tour involves spending approximately 30 minutes walking outdoors 🌞 on bush paths around the site and two separate staircases of approximately 40 stairs each and no lifts. A reasonable level of physical fitness is required, if stairs are an issue please contact us. Kids (older than 6 years old) are welcome on the tour, they must be registered for own ticket and be accompanied by an adult. Closed footwear is essential for all. We strongly recommend you wear long pants, a hat, sunscreen and bring a water bottle.

Please note: in spring and summer, snakes begin to emerge to bask in the sun and there may be an increase in sightings around the facility. In the unlikely event of a situation, your tour guide is trained in first aid should an emergency arise.

The cost of this event is $5 plus an Eventbrite booking fee. The event will begin with a short presentation followed by morning tea and then a tour of the RRRC, with an opportunity to have all your waste and recycling questions answered ♻️💚🙌.

⏰ Time: 10am-12noon

Wear: Fully enclosed footwear 👞, long pants 👖, hat and sunscreen.

Tickets: Member council tickets are available to residents from Claremont, Cottesloe, Mosman Park, Peppermint Grove & Subiaco. General admission tickets are available for Cambridge and residents from other councils.
