Tour of Veolia’s Materials Recovery Facility

16 April 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

We all need to reduce the amount of plastic we use and increase the amount of plastic we recycle, but do you ever wonder what happens to all the plastic and other recyclables that we put out in our blue bins?

Find out with an educational tour of Veolia’s Materials Recovery Facility in Mansfield. This state of the art recycling plant is where recyclable materials that are collected from households are sorted into different types (e.g. plastics, cardboard, paper, metal) using a mixture of manual and automated methods.

The tour lasts 2 hours and involves stairs but is an opportunity to see where recycled waste ends up and what happens to it.  If you are interested to join, please register with Lisa at transitionchesterfield@yahoo.co.uk

Spaces are limited so will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis.  As this is difficult by public transport please also indicate if you would need a lift or whether you can offer a lift to other people.

Note this facility serves Nottingham rather than Chesterfield but is the best local example of a facility open to the public.
