Take a Tour of the RRRC

Posted in: Uncategorized

The HHW Program provides funding for the collection and appropriate disposal of HHW collected from the thirteen collection sites in WA. At any of these sites, public can drop off their unwanted HHW for free, even if they are not a resident of the area.

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.

The minimum age to participate in a tour is 6 years of age.

You will visit:

  • The Waste Composting Facility, so you can learn how the general waste bin is turned into compost
  • The Green Waste Facility, where garden waste is turned into mulch
  • The Materials Recovery Facility, where recyclables are separated, baled and sold for reuse

The program can only accept domestic quantities of materials (no larger than 20kg/20l).
