Tiny Town Childcare Centre last month celebrated National Recycling Week 2017 to introduce children in its care to recycling.
Armidale Regional Council hosted the group as they toured the Armidale Waste Management Facility.
“The children were great to have at the facility,” said James Turnell, Council’s Program Leader - Waste Management.
“They were very interested and enthusiastically embraced the chance to learn about kerbside recycling, find out about what happens at the Armidale Waste Management Facility and then where the recycled materials go from there.”
Mark Low, aka the Cardboard King from Armidale Recycling Services, led the tour.
“Mark not only introduced the children to the facility, he showed them how to sort their recycling and answered a huge number of intelligent and thoughtful questions!” Mr Turnell said.
National Recycling Week was created to bring a national focus to the environmental benefits of recycling. The established and highly regarded campaign continues to educate and stimulate behaviour change, by promoting kerbside, industrial and community recycling initiatives and giving people the tools to minimise waste and manage material resources responsibly at home, work and school.
The Armidale Waste Management Facility is designed to maximise recycling and reuse of material – an outcome that the annual National Recycling Week campaign strives to promote.
