A NOOSA design company, Design Central, was awarded an overseas project after the New Caledonia council viewed the company's work at the Materials Recycling Centre Facility and Education Centre near Nambour.

Now with Design Central's successful completion of a similar facility in New Caledonia, the company has added to its reputation as a museum and education centre designer.

Synda Turnbull, who has run the company for 11 years, said the work originated from the sister city relationship between the then Maroochy Shire Council and Mont Dore Council, New Caledonia.

She said with help of Maroochy Council, Mont Dore Council had established a recycling program and built their own material recycling facility.

Her company enhanced the process with the education facility.

"The Mont Dore representatives were put in touch with us as we had already completed two waste Education Centres, one near Nambour, and one in Brisbane for VISY," Ms Turnbull said.

"Rubbish is a huge problem throughout the Pacific, and the education centre, is the first step, in their move towards educating the next generation not to litter, and to take better care of their environment," she said.

"They just don't have a lot of room for landfill, so recycling is hugely important."
