KESAB Education Centre tour
KESAB Education Centre tour

The KESAB Education Centre is located at Integrated Waste Services, (IWS) Wingfield. The centre is a purpose built education facility on a working site where visitors can have a sensory experience of what happens to their waste and recycling materials once their bins leave the kerbside. Drawing together elements of the natural environment, indigenous environmental stewardship and modern waste management and resource recovery, the education centre provides the base for interactive education sessions.

The KESAB Education Centre excursion incorporates a tour of material processing sites and activities in the education centre. The entire session is facilitated by KESAB’s experienced education officers.


KESAB’s expert educators will lead visitors on an hour-long tour taking in elements of material processing such as mixed waste, construction, organics, household hard waste, expanded polystyrene and electronic waste. The tour provides visitors with a firsthand look at what happens to the materials that are thrown away and how these are processed to achieve the best outcomes.

Classroom Activities

To reflect South Australia’s natural environment, the education centre has a marine theme, with fish and a huge seal. The seal sculpture is made entirely of ‘waste’ materials, to encourage contextual consideration of waste behaviours and the impact of our actions. KESAB’s expert staff educate students about the value of recycling and the impact on the environment. Students will break off into groups to take part in multiple diverse activities that develop an understanding of waste-to-resources terminology, technology, source separation and materials processing. Key messages are enhanced by the amazing sculptures indigenous artwork and a native garden.
