Recycling Facility Tour: City of Melville Residents

Would you like to learn a bit more about how you can make a difference to the environment by placing your waste in the correct bin?

At the Resource Recovery Group Canning Vale Centre you can come and see exactly what happens to your waste.

On the tour you will get to see:

  • The FOGO Processing Facility, where FOGO material is pre-processed to remove contamination.
  • The Green Waste Facility, where garden waste is turned into mulch.
  • The Materials Recovery Facility (MRF), where recyclables are separated, baled and sold for reuse.
  • The Education Centre, where there are lots more resources to help you to reduce, reuse and recycle.

The tour involves spending approximately 30 minutes walking outdoors on bush paths around the site. A reasonable level of physical fitness is required. Kids (older than 6 years old) are welcome on the tour, they must be registered for own ticket and be accompanied by an adult. Closed footwear is essential for all. We strongly recommend you wear long pants, a hat, sunscreen and bring a water bottle. Visitors that have any allergies such as bee stings must bring an Epipen with them.

STAIRS – Two separate staircases of approximately 40 STAIRS each. Platforms are located approximately every ten stairs (alternative options may be available – please contact the Waste Education Officer to discuss).

Please note: in spring and summer, snakes begin to emerge to bask in the sun and there may be an increase in sightings around the facility. In the unlikely event of a situation, your tour guide is trained in first aid should an emergency arise.

This tour is exclusively for City of Melville residents.
