Last month, on July 5, 15 members of the Tatura Probus Club went on the Follow Your Rubbish Tour, organised by Greater Shepparton City Council.
Members caught the bus from the Shepparton Library to Cosgrove and were met by two waste management delegates who took them on the rounds.
They could not believe how wellorganised the whole system worked.
The yellow bins were first, where the trucks unload, compacting and covering up, so it is secure.
When the section is filled it is capped and turned into gas and then into electricity, which produces enough power to supply 800 homes.
The green waste was another busy plant, turning garden and other green rubbish into compost —a product very much in demand.
The last stop was at Wanganui Rd where municipality residents can leave all items that cannot be recycled, at no cost.
At Wanganui Rd there is also a resource recovery shop, which is interesting and well worth a look.
The group joined other members at the Terminus Hotel for a delicious lunch and all agreed it was a very interesting day out.
