Have you ever wondered what happens to your waste?
Orange residents will be able to board a free tour on September 30 to check out the Ophir and Euchareena Road Resource Recovery Centres.
EnviroCom environmental consultant Jo Smith said this will be the first tour since the coronavirus hit.
"We have a COVID Safe plan in place and are following the regulations and recommendations by Orange City Council and the health department," she said.
"Vests and safety glasses are to be worn at all times and are sanitised inbetween the facilities. People are able to wear face masks and gloves if they want to.
"Everyone who boards on the bus will have to use hand sanitiser and sign in."
The tour will start at the Ophir Road Resource Recovery Centre in Orange where people will be able to see how general, organic and recycling waste is processed and transported.
They will then travel to the Euchareena Resource Recovery Centre in Molong, which isn't open to the public, to see how organic waste is processed into compost.
Ms Smith said because of the social distancing restrictions they have limited the amount of people on the tour.
"We will only have 25 people on the tour to accommodate the space on the bus," she said.
"People must sit at least one seat between each other unless they are members of the same household then they can stay together."
She added past events have been well attended by the Orange community.
"It will be a good experience for people who would like to know how Orange deals with our recycling, general and organic waste," Ms Smith said.
Attendees will meet at the Orange City Council car park by 9am, to return by 12:45pm at the latest.
