The Southern Landfill site tours are conducted as part of waste minimisation and education for school groups. We will be travelling by bus to and from the site.
The one-hour tour includes visiting the:
• Recycle centre and Second Treasures shop
• Transfer station
• Tip face
• Compost plant
• Dewatering plant
• Closed landfill sites.
The tour gives a history of waste operations at the Southern Landfill, looks at the volume
and types of waste being sent to landfills, and shares ways to reduce, reuse and recycle.
