As part of National Recycling Week Celebrations Midcoast Waste Services and JR Richards & Sons are offering local residents the chance to tour the Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) located in Tuncurry. The facility processes over 14 000 tonnes of material per year from the Great Lakes, Greater Taree and Gloucester Council areas.

Participants in the tours will see what happens to their recycling once the trucks bring it from their bins to the state of the art MRF. The Facility boasts a special education room with viewing windows located over the processing plant, providing onlookers with a bird’s eye view of the separation and processing of recyclables.

You will see each step of the sorting and baling process as well as learning about the new products recyclables are turned into and the environmental benefits of recycling.

The free tours are open to all community members and will take place at 10.00 am on Tuesday 11th November and again at 1.00pm on Thursday 13th November.  Light refreshments will be provided during the tour.

So why not come along and see where all your recycling goes and ask all those tricky questions you’ve been wondering about.
