There’s no time to waste
Ever wondered what happens to your rubbish, recycling and green waste once the truck picks it up?
City of Burnside residents are invited to get a first hand, behind the scenes experience on waste management on the free ‘Beyond the Kerbside’ tours, as part of National Recycling Week.
The fun and interactive bus tours will explore the processing of rubbish, recyclables and green waste as well as electronic and building waste and address a range of issues including environmental sustainability, reducing waste to landfill, and the increasing markets for recycled products.
The tours include visits to VISY Recycling, Integrated Waste Services, Resource Co, Jeffries, E-Cycle Recovery and CRT Recycling, where representatives from each organisation will take residents on a guided tour.
City of Burnside Acting CEO, Paul Deb, said the tours, which are part of Council’s Community Environmental Awareness Program, aim to inform and raise awareness about the importance of recycling.
“The ‘Beyond the Kerbside’ tours provide the community with the opportunity to learn about recycling and find out about how they can help make a positive difference to our environment”, said Paul Deb.
Two tours will be conducted on Tuesday 9 and Thursday 11 November 2010, starting at 10.15am and concluding at 4.30pm.
