Excursion Opportunities

Remondis 

All schools and community groups on the Central Coast are invited to visit the Remondis education facility to learn more about waste and recycling. The facility can hold approximately 30 people at a time and is available for excursions Monday to Friday from 9am until 12pm.

A visit to the Remondis education facility will enable people to understand what items can and cannot be placed within each of the 3 bins, what happens to recycling, garden vegetation and general waste after it has been collected and the benefits of recycling and reducing waste to landfill. Visitors will also be given the opportunity to view the recycling sorting process at our Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) via live CC TV cameras. Viewing the sorting process allows visitors to understand why we cannot recycle some items and the consequences of placing wrong items into the recycling bin. The use of the CCTV cameras allows people to view the sorting facility up close whilst keeping them away from the operating facility. This helps reduce any risk that may be associated with students being around operating machinery. Where possible, excursions will have a strong activity based focus and include trivia questions and recycle relay activities.

To organise a School Excursion fill out the School Excursion Booking Form.
