Visiting Us Resources Harakeke Classroom Public education events Contact Us

At the Whanganui Resource Recovery Centre, we have educators available to cater for all ages with curriculum-based lessons at our Maria Place recycling facility. The ‘Harakeke Classroom’ is located on site. Each visit includes a tour of the recycling facilities, looking at what happens to our recycling and talking about ways we can reduce the waste sent to landfill.

Contact us today to arrange your visit.

Education is the key to increasing public understanding around recycling. If we educate the next generation about recycling and sustainability then we are creating a better tomorrow.

We may also be able to arrange our educators to visit you at your school or venue
