Suitable for children aged 7 and up, the informative visit uses a range of methods including films, practical activities and where possible a site tour.

Community groups

Would you and the group(s) you run or attend like a presentation on recycling? We offer a comprehensive talk on the benefits and importance of recycling, covering topics such as:
