Green Week Celebrations
Have you ever wondered what happens to the rubbish in the yellow topped bins?

Well, worry no more!

Join in the green fun at the VISY Recycling Tour


Tuesday 3 June @ 11am.

Part of the Gold Coast Green Week ('cause Green is the new black), you can join in the recycling fun for a behind-the-scenes look at how our 'trash' is turned into 'treasure' - well at least something new.



You will have a guided tour of the Visy Materials Recovery Facility and see how their recycling experts recycle glass, paper, steel and aluminium. If that's not exciting enough you will also learn how your waste is sorted ready for transformation into new recycled products. Just like magic!

Last time I went to the 'tip', I was amazed at the volume of landfill we produce. I think this would be a really interesting thing to do to understand just how our waste is reborn into something new. And, perhaps to cement the importance of Recycling. Maybe a teenager could use it as stimulus for a project or assignment...

You can visit their website for more information.

How do I register?
You must book to be part of this free event, and it's suitable for ages 15 plus. Toni Lee 07 5581 6855 or tlee@goldcoastqld.gov.au

Remember to wear long pants and closed in footwear, and bring a mask if you have asthma.

Mark it in your diaries!
