Ever wondered what really happens to your recycling? The team at Kurrajong Recycling are ready to show you.
Our tours demonstrate what we do, what we can recycle and the important role everyone plays in recycling correctly at home and work. They are also a great opportunity for us to answer questions and learn more about your recycling experiences.
To ensure a safe and informative tour within an operating industrial site, each tour is designed according to the needs and features of each group e.g. age, interest, mobility and available time.
Tours are designed around three areas:
- Site Orientation and Safety talk
- Walking tour of the facility: the sights, sounds and smells of processing, baling and storage of materials
- Workshop: How to ‘Recycle Right’
Tour timing & group size
The time taken for a site visit is 1─2 hours depending on the group size, age and requirements.
