The Environmental Education Centre is located at the Red Hill Waste Management Facility. Originally an old Telstra transportable workshop, the building was brought to Red Hill in 2004 with the aim of providing an education centre focused on sustainability for students and the broader community.
Presently, the Environmental Education Centre hosts interactive activity stations suitable for primary students, a highlight of which are the 4R mannequins (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Recover) made from recovered objects. The mannequins form the main themes of the activity stations. Education materials are available for schools to download and use for each of the stations when visiting Red Hill Waste Management Facility (see links below).
The centre also has a small activity room suitable for hands-on workshops and group activities. While the focus of the centre is on school students, it also has regular visits from environmental educators, allied professionals and community groups.
