Tour Blenheim’s Resource Recovery Centre

Take a virtual tour of Blenheim’s Resource Recovery Centre, Waste Sorting Centre, and Green Waste facility with students from Fairhall School.

Emily, Fynn, Allie, and Max have made this very professional video that takes you behind the scenes to find out all about what happens to Blenheim’s waste.  From recycling to reuse, compost to hazardous waste disposal – they cover it all!

This video has been added to our Enviroschools Marlborough google drive: you will find it in the Zero Waste folder, along with heaps of other digital resources.  You can also learn more about Marlborough’s facilities for dealing with waste on the Marlborough District Council website.  Either search ‘waste’ and go from there, or visit this page to download MDC’s waste kit.  If you are considering taking your school group for a guided tour of the Resource Recovery Centre, you can read about Blenheim School’s trip earlier this year in this blog post.  Find out more and make a booking by emailing Annie McDonald at  You might find that this video is a useful way to recap after your visit!

Emily, Fynn, Allie, and Max: Kei whea kē mai te pai o te mahi nei! | What an excellent job you have done!

Thank you for the effort that you have put into this project, and for being willing to share it with the Marlborough community.
