Students can visit Wellington city's last remaining landfill and observe areas of Wellington that have traditionally been out of bounds for children
Students can visit Wellington city's last remaining landfill and observe areas of Wellington that have traditionally been out of bounds for children.
All senses will be engaged on the site, resulting in an increased understanding of waste issues and how students can make a positive contribution to reducing rubbish. Starting at the information centre, students can see some of the processes and issues surrounding household waste and gain an appreciation of the ongoing environmental implications and management required. At the transfer station, students will gain an appreciation of how land care management is operated.
On the completion of the tour, students will have an insight into contemporary waste issues and will experience practical ways to extend the life of their local tip and help reduce waste.
