On Saturday the 22nd of February the Australian Science Communicators visited the Regional Resource Recovery Centre. They gave the tour the big thumbs up!  Some members of the group took some cuttings from our vegetable garden to take home!
Thanks for coming in and helping us to spread the word about Recycling!


Wilbur the Western Bearded Dragon has moved into the RRRC vegetable garden to live and is loving warming himself on the new recycled metal art. We think he is also loving his new diet of the various insects and flowers in the garden. Why not come on a tour and meet Wilbur for yourself!
