Ef­fi­cient sys­tem

The Tatura Guardian - - People - — Barb Hal­li­well

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.
