Event description

Description

Ever wondered how your kerbside recycling gets sorted?

Are you sure you know what goes in the recycling bin?


Visy Recycling sorts Auckland's kerbside recycling materials into their individual types - paper, steel, glass, plastics and aluminium. Register for a half hour educational session on Open Day and learn how your kerbside recycling gets sorted, as well as how to recycle right.

It's free recycling education for Auckland residents. Auckland Council representatives will also be on site to answer your recycling questions.


What happens during the half hour session?

- You'll see our Educational video, which shows the sorting process and discusses what can and can't be recycled in the bin

- You'll have Q&A time with a Visy Recycling representative

- You'll (weather permitting) walk around the primeter of the site to see where material is dropped, and some finished bales of recyclables


Is it suitable for the whole family?

As it is a working industrial site, there are hazards (such as crossing a busy truck thoroughfare) and it can be a dirty environment, not suited to children who do not yet walk well (debris/glass on walk-ways) or who may want to investigate the environment with their hands & mouths.

  • Visitors under 5 years of age must be carefully supervised at all times. Babies and toddlers will need to be carried or in a pram (please use rain covers for dust debris) while moving around the site.
