The excursion activities
Recycling centre bus tour – Students will be taken on a bus tour of the BINGO Recycling Centre in Auburn. At the Centre, they will discover what happens to building waste after collection and they’ll be shown the all of the processes involved in recycling. They will also get a look at our recycling machinery, including our star, ‘Big MRF (or Murf)’.
Can you recycle a house? Students will be given the opportunity to literally deconstruct a house, tip the waste into a BINGO skip and then separate the building waste into categories.
Recycle right: the recycling journey – Students will explore the processes used to recycle building and construction waste.
Keep it Green! Using recycled and reused products, students will create a mini greenhouse to take home. They will also be given the opportunity to design an Eco-House using sustainable practices.
