Bin It
We live in a material world but what do you do with your toys when they stop working? How about the left over packaging from our food, where do you put it? Most of us call that rubbish and bin it, but what happens to the rubbish then? Where does it go? In this adventure we endeavour to find out!

We will visit the Material Recovery Facility in Heidelberg to learn how science and technology are involved in the process of recycling. This is a working facility with huge machines that are used to sort used paper, glass, steel, plastics & aluminium. The last destination is a landfill site in Hampton Park. This is where all the waste goes that isn’t recycled. We will take a tour of the plant and see what they do with all our garbage!
