Event description

Description

Have you ever wondered what happens to your recycling once you put it in your yellow-lidded recycling bin? Well here is your chance to find out! City of Ryde residents are invited on a free tour of the Visy Materials Recycling Facility at Smithfield where materials from your yellow-lidded recycling bin are sorted. After the tour of Visy we will return to the Ryde Library (across the road from the Civic Centre) for a light afternoon tea and short presentation including tips for recycling and how to reduce your waste going to landfill.

When: Tuesday 14 November 2017

When: 9.00am - 1.30pm (arrive 8.45am)

Where: Meet at the Ryde Civic Centre car park where a bus will take us to and from Smithfield.

Address: Civic Centre, 1 Devlin St, Ryde

Who: City of Ryde residents who are over 18 years of age.

Bring: A packed lunch or snack to enjoy on the bus and a sense of adventure.
