Event description

Description

Ever wondered what really happens to your recycling after it has been collected? Come along to our FREE open days and find out. Discover how we use the latest technology to sort paper from plastic bottles and cans from cardboard on a tour of the Materials Recovery Facility.

There will be plenty of activities to keep children entertained and also stalls offering advice on reducing, reusing and recycling your waste. You will be able to walk along the secure viewing platform above the Materials Recovery Facility and discover how the recycling that is collected from homes across Merseyside and Halton is sorted and separated into resources.

Register for a ticket or just turn up on the day!


Free refreshments, free parking, lift access and toilets.


Please Note: Gillmoss Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) normally operates Monday to Friday to recover materials from your recycling. We therefore cannot guarantee that the MRF will be operational on the Saturday but there is still plenty to see and do.

FAQs

Are there minimum age requirements to enter the event?

No, the event is open to young and old alike. We do have basic baby-changing facilities.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

While we encourage you to use public transport (we are a short walk from the Stonebridge Lane stop on the East Lancs) we do have a visitors car park which is on the right as you come onto site. We operate a strict 10mph speed limit as there are HGV lorries using the same access road.

If you are cycling to the event, to keep you safe we advise you to use the footpath/pavement to enter the site. There is a bike-shelter.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Please email uk.veolia.discoverycentre@veolia.com and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
