Lismore City Environment Education Centre a great place to learn

The Lismore City Environment Education Centre is an educational space available to school and community groups next door to the Lismore Recycling & Recovery Centre on Wyrallah Road.

The centre was opened in 2013 and features the latest audio visual technology such as an interactive projector. School groups and visitors are able to learn about the importance of the natural world as well the full lifecycle of waste with hands-on activities.

Tours of the neighbouring waste facility can be arranged and our new phytocapping site – the first in NSW – is opposite the centre. A phytocap is a complex layer of local native vegetation that controls drainage at landfill sites, replacing the traditional method of capping with layers of clay, gravel and dirt. The end result is a beautiful native forest that provides much-needed koala habitat.

The Lismore City Environment Education Centre is bright, airy and an excellent space for educational activities. It is also available for hire as a place to conduct presentations or training.

To arrange a school visit, waste tour or to book the space, phone the Waste Hotline on 1300 87 83 87.
