Event Information

Family Workshop and Hartland Landfill Tour

Looking for something to do as a family this spring break? Join us for a workshop and tour of Hartland Landfill!

Starting at the Hartland Learning Centre, we will discuss the 3Rs (reduce, reuse, recycle), what ends up in our landfill and simple things we can do to have less garbage. Complete an activity as a family and then hop on a school bus for a behind-the-scenes tour of the landfill. On the tour we will see where our garbage ends up, learn about how it is crushed and buried and talk about how garbage can be turned into electricity.

Ages: 6+ (all children must be accompanied by an adult)  


Tour highlights:

  • Active Face - see where all your garbage goes and what we do with it at the active face
  • Landfill Gas - Learn about landfill gas and how we're reducing greenhouse gas emissions and turning "garbage into electricity"
  • Environmental Protection - See how we manage rainfall runoff to ensure we protect our environment
  • Site Rehabilitation - Visit the closed section of the landfill where native trees and shrubs have been planted to help return the area into a natural eco-system.

If you have any questions please contact us via email or at 250.360.3133.
