2021 DIAA Lunch Box Series: Seminar 2

Lunch times this year are not just about fuelling your body, they’re also about fuelling your mind. 

DIAA is running a series of lunchtime seminars across a range of topics in 2021. 

The second of our monthly DIAA Lunch Box Seminars is on Thursday 13th May, from midday until 1pm (AEDT).  

Topic: "It's all about recycling: an MRF in action". 

As dairy industry professionals, many of us have decisions to make on how our products are processed and packaged. One of the many considerations is how product packaging is handled after the consumer has finished with the item.

With this in mind, please join us for a tour of a Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) in Melbourne. In this online presentation, we will see how everyday materials are sorted, reprocessed and made ready for a new life, and enjoy a presentation about how an MRF separates used packaging into material types, ready for reprocessing. You'll also learn about the dos and don'ts of recycling, such as remembering to leave the lid on your plastic bottles and why. 

We hope you’ll join us as you get to experience virtually an MRF in action, as a series of conveyor belts, material-specific machines, manual sorters and massive trommels make light work of separating 340 tonnes of mixed used packaging a day.


This DIAA Lunch Box Seminar will be run online. Please remember to put this date in your diary. Registrants will receive log-on instructions the day before the event. 

Price: free for DIAA members. Non-members just $10.
