Have you ever considered what actually happens to your rubbish once it leaves your verge side collection? Would you like to learn a bit more about how you can make a difference to the environment by placing your rubbish in the correct bin?

At the Southern Metropolitan Regional Council’s Regional Resource Recovery Centre (RRRC) in Canning Vale, you can come and see exactly what happens to your waste.

Free 1.5 hour tours are available to educate visitors about the recycling process and allow safe and exciting views from observation decks into the various facilities. All school, community and family groups are welcome, as well as individuals.

You will visit:
