Online tourTour our Material Recovery Facility

Recycling centre bales

In partnership with VISY Recycling, we are running online tours of the Material Recovery Facility (MRF) as part of National Recycling Week.

See how everyday materials are sorted, reprocessed and made ready for a new life, and enjoy a presentation about how a Material Recovery Facility separates used packaging into material type ready for reprocessing. You'll also learn about the dos and don'ts of recycling, such as remembering to leave the lid on your plastic bottles and why.

You will get to experience a MRF in action, as a series of conveyor belts, material specific machines, manual sorters and massive trommels make light work of separating 340 tonnes of mixed used packaging a day.
