Open Day – Viridor landfill site and Carymoor
Saturday 13th September 2014
Time: 10 am – 3 pm
On Saturday 13th September we will be opening our doors to the public as part of the Heritage Open Day weekend. This is an excellent chance to visit buildings and spaces that aren’t normally open to the public, so take the opportunity to visit our beautiful nature reserve and buildings and find out more about what we do.
Take a guided tour around our sustainable buildings and the Dimmer site, taking in the species-rich nature reserve that we have developed on the capped landfill site. You will also be able to see how household rubbish is disposed of and how electricity is generated from landfill gas by Viridor, who run the site. Find out how the green waste from your garden is turned into Revive soil conditioner by the large-scale composting operation on site.
There will be children’s activities and a nature trail for them to take part in. Refreshments will also be available at the centre. You are welcome to visit any time between 10 am and 3 pm. Guided tours will take place at 10.30am, 12.30pm and 2pm. Free entry. For more information phone 01963 350143.
