Resource's Education Program is back this April with a range of tours and workshops on offer. We look forward to seeing you soon.
Resource is committed to promoting waste minimisation in our community. We provide a range of educational experiences for all ages including Tip Shop Tours and Workshops for individuals and families, as well as groups.
Be your own resource! Join us as we dive into the world of understanding what recycling is all about, share with you the skills to make and repair your own goods, and take you behind the scenes of Resource so we can show you what we do to minimise waste going to landfill. There is something for adults, families and children.
GROUP TIP SHOP TOURS - Make a booking enquiry by completing our Resource Tip Shop Tour and Workshop Booking Enquiry Form.
Resource welcomes tour bookings from schools, community groups, businesses and organisations. Tours aim to showcase how the Resource Tip Shop operates to reduce, recycle and reimagine waste through salvaging, receiving, repairing and selling goods.
Participants will get the opportunity to learn about what a co-operative is and go behind the scenes of the Resource Tip Shop to see our operations in action. On any given day this may include visiting our salvage, sorting, scrap, e-waste, arts parts, collectables and timber processing teams in action. All Resource Tip Shop Tours finish with a visit to our shop where participants are welcome to shop at the end of the tour. This is a fascinating look into the operation of our unique social enterprise.
Tours are approximately 1 hour in duration and are delivered Monday - Friday, between 9:00 am and 3:45 pm. The cost is $50 including GST, for up to 25 individuals.

Our Workshops are perfect for Tasmanian schools, home-school and community groups as they provide the opportunity to discuss issues relating to sustainability and responsible waste management. We provide tutors, facilities and materials and can tailor an activity to suit you and your group. Most workshops are delivered at the South Hobart Tip Shop, however, we can deliver workshops at schools, organisations or events.
The education packages are tailored to participant needs:
- School Students - early childhood, primary, secondary, college and university
- Teachers - familiarising teachers and educators with the recycled materials for teaching
- Community - events, festivals and organisational activities
- Business - opportunities for team building, recycling education
The school workshops are aligned to the Australian Curriculum and the Early Years Learning Framework.
