About this trip

Ever looked closely at what you consume? How much do you know about the 5 R's - reduce, reuse, recycle, recover, and residual management? Some of the 5 R's are a matter of personal responsibility and good citizenship. Some of them are carried out by organisations who nowadays follow strict 21st century environmental practices on a large scale.

On this field trip you will find out more about the 5 R's when you follow Waste Management's Auckland operations, that include recycling and a visit to Redvale, New Zealand's largest facility. Redvale combines waste management and energy production in its landfill.

This online field trip supports a STEAM-based, cross curricular approach to teaching and learning. Participation encourages curiosity, citizen-science and student inquiry. Access theĀ glossary. See what the school ambassadors did. View the photo gallery. Try the interactive activities.
