Understanding what happens outside of your own perception is always eyeopening and educational, plus gives you a better understanding of and empathy towards what goes on. Ever wondered what happens when your waste leaves your verge? Whether you do, or you don't, Recycle Right's Community Tours of the Regional Resource Recovery Centre is a great way to educate yourself about how we can be kinder towards Mother Earth. It's also a source of inspiration that teaches us how to be mindful and lends awareness of our shopping habits.
Come along to the RRRC in Canning Vale at 350 Bannister Rd, Canning Vale, and see exactly what happens to your waste. The tour is FREE and you'll visit a few main areas as follows.
The Materials Recovery Facility, 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 the FOGO materials
The Education Centre, where there are lots more resources to help you to reuse, reduce and recycle

Hi Jen, thanks for your article regarding the RRRC tours. The link that you posted does not have any info. This is the reply that I got from them, and I found out somewhere else that their Facebook page is Recyle Right. You might want to update your article. Regards, Deb :)
Hi, apparently there is a tour of RRRC in Canningvale on Saturday 6th March 2021 and Thursday 18th March, but I can't find this info here on Fb or on your website. Can you please advise? Thanks.
