About WasteSA City Walking Tour
Lessons from the past, visions of the future

Join us on a walking tour of this vibrant and modern city where thousands of people come to live, work, & play. Adelaide may have once been seen by many as ‘a big country town’ but even if the stigma remains this is certainly no longer the case. The city has grown in both population and diversity with a range urban forms such as shops, houses, apartments, & public spaces from the old and iconic like Adelaide’s famed central markets to the modern Whitmore square apartments and everything in between.

Take a stroll and gain an understanding of the many challenges posed by such a diverse and changing landscape that constantly battles the economies of scale and defies a one-size-fits-all. Learn about how policy, planning, design, technology, services all interact in the rich, and at time extremely complicated, tapestry of waste management and resource recovery in the city. You will see some great examples of how a variety of approaches have been used to achieve great waste management and resource recovery outcomes that will be robust enough to stand the test of time for many years to come.

  • Christie Walk
  • 100-113 South Tce (Higher Density Waste Management)
