Event description

Description

Have you ever wondered what happens to your recycling once you put it in your yellow-lidded recycling bin? Well here is your chance to find out!

City of Ryde Council residents are invited on a free tour of the VISY Materials Recycling Facility at Smithfield where materials from your yellow-lidded recycling bin are sent and sorted. You will get to walk through the factory and see your recycling in action!

After the tour of VISY we will return to Ryde Library (across the road from the Civic Centre) for light refreshments and a short presentation including tips for recycling and how to reduce your waste going to landfill.


When: Tuesday 12 November 2019

Time: 9.00am - 1.30pm (arrive 8.45am)

Where: Meet at the City of Ryde Civic Centre car park at the rear of 1 Devlin St, Ryde to board the bus to Smithfield. The bus will return participants to Ryde Library (across the road from the Civic Centre).

Who: City of Ryde Council residents who are 18 years and over.

Cost: FREE for City of Ryde residents. Bus transport and afternoon tea will be provided at no cost.
