This excursion is great when used at the beginning of a unit to introduce the topic of waste and recycling, or at the end to tie all of the students’ learning together!

What better way for students to learn about waste and recycling than by going on an excursion to KESAB’S Education Centre at Wingfield?

A KESAB education officer will take your students on a 40-minute bus tour of the Wingfield Waste & Recycling Centre (WWRC) to show how materials from household waste and organics bins, and commercial and industrial bins, are processed.

After the tour and a 15-minute recess break, students complete group activities in KESAB’s Education Centre. The education centre provides an environment for students to extend their learning with a series of activities linked to the WWRC sites and household bin collections.

The education centre also demonstrates the use of recycled organics, water harvesting, and re-use of construction and demolition materials.

Note: Due to the nature of the excursion (length of time and activities involved) this excursion is only suitable for students in Year 2 and above.

Please note: KESAB education sessions may be subsidised for sites in Tea Tree Gully, Unley and Port Adelaide Enfield council areas. Please check with a KESAB waste education officer to confirm what subsidies are currently available.
