Whether you are passionate about the environment, or merely carry out the weekly chore of putting out the different coloured containers of the domestic and garden waste, we are all nowadays involved in recycling whether we like it or not!

Have you ever, however, wondered what really happens to the waste you have taken so much time and effort to separate? You can read more about the subject on the Cheshire West & Chester website but, if you would like a more personal account, why not get a group together and enjoy a free visit to the bespoke "Recycle First" Education Centre that has been created at the recycling depot in Winsford.

The visit includes a tour around a real working recycle depot and you will find out what happens to your domestic and garden waste once it's collected from your home. The education centre is designed to accommodate schools and community groups of up to 25 people (classroom style) or 40 people (cinema style) for visitors aged 7 and over.

The aim of the centre is to teach residents about what happens to their recycling, why we need to recycle, how to reduce waste, home composting, and to promote the 'love food hate waste' campaign. The overall goals are to reduce the amount of waste sent to land fill sites, increase the recycling rate in the area, and improve the quality of recycling material collected.
