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.
