Had the pleasure to host Queenstown Resort College students through the recycling facilty in August. It's important for our future hospitality and tourism managers to understand the full waste stream, and what is involved in terms of the collection process, processing and exporting of recycling.
We try to emphasis to all visitors that reducing waste is the ultimate goal and business can make siginficant savings, as well as deliver on sustainabilty initiatives.
The tours were held over two days with classes segregated into adventure tourism and hospitality/accomodation. Well done to QRC for including this process as part of the curriculum.
