A limited number of FREE in-house education sessions are available to Early Learning Centres, Kindergartens, Primary and Secondary schools in Whitehorse.
These recycling education sessions are designed to help students form a broader understanding of why recycling is important, what can and can’t be recycled in your household bin and what happens to recyclables once they leave the kerbside. Students will be taken on a journey through the recycling plant and explore how different materials are sorted and what they are made into at the end of the process.
Bookings can be made directly with Visy’s education coordinator by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a session. Duration of each session is approximately 1 hour. Visy can accommodate between 1 - 3 classes in one session (up to 70 students). This can also be discussed in more detail with the education coordinator when making your booking.
