The event is designed to show how a landfill site works and turns waste into a resource.
During the day visitors can experience:
- A site tour in 4x4 vehicles of the active landfill area.
- Construction of a new landfill containment cell.
- A falconer with a selection of working birds of prey.
John Barnes, Landfill Manager at Veolia Environmental Services said:
“We think this is a great opportunity for our neighbours and local residents to come and explore what happens at our site. We hope people will come to meet us and gain an inside view on how we are working behind the scenes on their behalf!”
