Event description
Come along and explore how your black bin waste is turned into energy that powers 16000 homes!

About this Event

The team at Peterborough Energy Recovery Facility, will be opening its doors to members of the public in September to explore the state-of-the-art facility which turns residual waste into energy. Making a significant step towards the city’s zero waste to landfill ambitions, Peterborough City Council is now able to divert up to 95% of its non-recyclable waste from landfill and this is your chance to lift the lid and see the science behind what happens when you take out your rubbish bin.
