It’s the most wonderful time of the year but over the festive period we create more rubbish that at any other time. We will give you tips and hints to make your celebrations greener this year by wasting less, reusing items and recycling more.

The session also includes:

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)
