See your recycling in action!

Have you ever wondered what happens to your recycling after it has been collected?

Bring your children ( must be aged 7 or over ) to see behind the scenes at our Materials Recovery Facility at Longley Lane in Manchester to see how recycling is sorted and separated from over a million homes. Take part in a site tour wearing some cool PPE and take part in some fun activities to help everyone recycle right.

A  tour of the Materials Recovery Facility

  • See how your plastic bottles are sorted using near infra-red lasers
  • Find out how glass bottles and jars are given a clean using cyclones
  •  Watch how we turn your aluminium drinks cans and foil into biscuits (not suitable for eating)

  • Visit is open to Greater Manchester residents only (Excluding Wigan).
