SLCS visit the Wakatipu Resource Recovery Park

Inspired by my visit to school with the year 3 & 4's, Southern Lakes Christian School booked themselves in for a tour of the resource recovery park in Frankton. I was asked if I would like to come along as a helper.

We started off the visit with a look around the reuse shop, perfect for the year 3 & 4's, they soon figured out heaps of different uses for most of the stuff in the shop, well done guys.

We were lucky enough to have as our tour guide Stefan Borrowy, the QLDC Solid Waste Manager. He did an awesome job of showing us around and in small groups we got to go into the plant area and have a really good look at their MRF (Materials Recycling Facility).

This was a great tour, it's really useful for everyone to see what happens to all their stuff that they put out for recycling.

If you would like your school to go on a tour of the Wakatipu Resource Recovery Park, please phone QLDC on 03 441 0499. If you would like a tour of Wanaka Wastebusters, then please phone me, Simon, on 03 443 8606 ext. 3
