Pupils mark recycling centre milestone


Children from Millbrook Primary School in Kirkby have helped Merseyside’s Recycling Discovery Centre celebrate a major milestone.

The pupils were the 50,000th visitors to the centre in Gillmoss, Liverpool, which processes recycling waste from across Merseyside.

The centre’s education programme began in 2009 and has been visited by groups from all over Merseyside and Halton over the last 10 years.

The centre offers a unique visitor experience, designed to show visitors the journey that waste and recycling takes after being collected from homes in Halton, Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton and Wirral. Groups are treated to a tour of the Materials Recovery Facility where they can see how recycling is processed using various techniques and technology.

The Gillmoss Recycling Discovery Centre is operated by resource management company Veolia on behalf of Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority (MRWA). The centre offers free visits to education, community and adult groups. Booking is essential and you can book online or find more information on the Veolia UK website.
