Virtual tours of the Material Recovery Facility

Next date: Wednesday, 10 November 2021 | 10:00 AM to 11:15 AM

Recycling centre bales

We are running online tours of the Material Recovery Facility (MRF) as part of World Environment Day.

Enjoy a presentation about how a Material Recovery Facility separates used packaging into material type ready for reprocessing, and learn about the dos and don'ts of recycling, such as remembering to leave the lid on your plastic bottles and why.

Then experience a MRF in action, as a series of conveyor belts, material specific machines, manual sorters and massive trommels make light work of separating 340 tonnes of mixed used packaging a day.
