INVITATION TO VISIT RE-VAMPED RESOURCE CENTRE AT THE ATHLONE REFUSE TRANSFER STATION (ARTS)
The City’s Solid Waste Management Department is striving to create awareness of the cause and effect of poor waste management and the benefits of integrated waste management. Important partners are educators, learners and their families. In an effort to expose learners to the waste stream journey, the City offers learners the opportunity to visit one of its refuse transfer stations.
The Athlone Refuse Transfer Station (ARTS) in Bhunga Avenue, Langa, has been in existence for eight years, but was revamped and re-opened in July this year.
A visit to the ARTS is an interactive educational experience in waste and in waste management, waste avoidance and responsible waste disposal. The visit includes an informative audiovisual and the experience of ARTS as a working plant giving educators and learners an insight into the waste stream journey.
Please note: The visit to the ARTS is recommended for learners from Grade 4 and up and all school groups must be under adult supervision. Groups are limited to 30 individuals per group. Split tours may be requested but this is subject to availability of staff.
