Free recycling game app available to residents

28 January, 2014

Waste Services has released a recycling game for iOS devices that teaches young residents about recycling in an entertaining and challenging way.

Lunchtime Legends is set in the school yard, and is designed to increase knowledge in students aged 5-13 years. Players sort falling rubbish items into either a general waste bin or a recycling bin in the fastest manner possible, all while trying to avoid possums who attempt to raid the bins. As the game advances, players progress to sorting waste in the home environment, which features more difficult items and an organic recycling bin. While designed to appeal to primary school aged children, the game's varying levels of complexity will appeal to all members of the family and community.

This waste minimisation initiative aims to increase resource recovery and recycling knowledge across the broader community by increasing awareness of things that can and can't be recycled, and educating about contaminants in the recycling stream. Lunchtime Legends follows on from the success of Council's Worm World, the game that teaches children how to compost fruit and vegetable scraps using a worm farm.

Lunchtime Legends and Worm World are available as free downloads for Apple devices from the App Store, and flash version of the game are available to play on Council's website. New levels will be added to the game through future Store updates. We are also currently investigating making the game available for Android devices.

If you have any questions about Lunchtime Legends or Worm World, please contact the Contact Centre on 3403 8888 or visit www.brisbane.qld.gov.au/waste.
