Free recycling tours this weekend
  • Friday 13 November 2009

Council is opening the doors to recycling centres across the Coast on 14 November to show residents how waste is processed and how small actions make a big difference.

The tours form part of council’s National Recycling Week program, which started on 7 November with the first of 12 wormfarm workshops.

The three tours cover Noosa, Caloundra and Nambour; include an interactive recycling presentation as well as a bus tour of the local landfill and recycling centre.

Participants will learn how to tell, which plastic products can be recycled, why carrier bags are a no-no, how rinsing recyclables can help our sorting facilities and much more.

Bookings are essential as places are limited. Anyone wishing to book should contact council’s customer service centre on 5475 7272.
