WMRC has a special tour with the Resource Recovery Group so you can see what happens to your waste once it leaves your verge!
On the tour you will get to see:
🍎The FOGO Processing Facility, where FOGO material is pre-processed to remove contamination.
🌱 The Green Waste Facility, where garden waste is turned into mulch.
♻️ The Materials Recovery Facility (MRF), where recyclables are separated, baled and sold for reuse.
👩‍🏫 The Education Centre, where there are lots more resources to help you to reduce, reuse and recycle.
Learn a bit more about how you can make a difference to the environment by placing your waste in the correct bin!
The tour involves spending approximately 30 minutes walking outdoors on bush paths around the site. A reasonable level of physical fitness is required. Kids (older than 6 years old) are welcome on the tour, they must be registered for own ticket and be accompanied by an adult.
Closed footwear is essential for all.
We strongly recommend you wear long pants, a hat, sunscreen and bring a water bottle.
Visitors that have any allergies such as bee stings must bring an Epipen with them.
A light morning tea will be provided.
Please note: in spring and summer, snakes begin to emerge to bask in the sun and there may be an increase in sightings around the facility. In the unlikely event of a situation, your tour guide is trained in first aid should an emergency arise.
Member council tickets are available to residents from Claremont, Cottesloe, Mosman Park, Peppermint Grove & Subiaco. General admission tickets are available for Cambridge and residents from other councils.
