Recycle Refuse Transfer Station

This trip was an eye opener. Just to see the quantities of rubbish that we produce is astounding.

We spent time in the classroom learning about how glass, plastic, aluminium and tin are recycled. The children came up with some awesome questions about this process, they definitely had their thinking hats on. We then got our safety gear on and went for a walk around the dump to see the array of different items that ended up there. 

We finished our trip by exploring the classroom garden, where everything has been made from recycled parts. They have discovered some very creative ways to reuse unwanted equipment.
