  • Duration: 1.5 hours
  • Cost: Schools in Banyule: free. Other schools: $465.10

Tour a material recovery facility

After we view the real recycling facility, we take a virtual tour. This presenter-led interactive electronic presentation explains how used packaging is sorted into material type by exploiting the physical differences between of each of the packaging types and the materials they are made from.

Students tour a material recovery facility at work via an elevated viewing balcony, and then return to our education room for a Q&A session about what they have seen.

Hypermart waste wise shopping

Students participate in a simulated supermarket shopping activity that tests their knowledge of reusable containers and recyclable packaging materials.

Material reprocessing

This activity explores how secondary raw materials return to the supermarket shelf as new recycled content products.
