Henderson Waste Recovery Park Tours

These school tours are a great way to find out exactly what happens to the waste you produce. Discover the amazing ins and outs of our waste stream by taking a Recovery Park Tour. Tour components include;

  • Waste minimisation and resource recovery
  • Understanding landfill - why we still landfill, how landfills are designed and how they function including methane gas and leachate extraction
  • The Domestic Transfer Station - where goods are recovered to then be reused, on-sold or recycled (rather than being landfilled!)
  • Waste Gas to Energy - Methane Gas Capture, Extraction and Use back into the electricity grid as energy
  • Recycle Shop - recovered materials shop with quality goods made of recycled stuff!
  • Tours take place on Friday mornings. To register call 9411 3444 or contact customer@cockburn.wa.gov.au or click  HERE to view the poster.

Waste Education Mobile Trailer

As part of the City of Cockburn's commitment to sustainability and community waste education, it recently developed a mobile waste education trailer. The trailer was developed in partnership with the Australian Association for Environmental Education (WA) and is available for loan to schools and community groups within the City of Cockburn.

It can be used as part of waste education programmes within schools or at community events, and contains a range of resources including information about the importance of minimising our waste, as well as a number of fun waste education games like our fantastic new Wetlands Game, or the Recycling and Composting Games.

For more information and to enquire about using the Waste Education Trailer at your event. Please contact the City's Environment and Waste Education Officer here customer@cockburn.wa.gov.au.
