Recycling Centre Visit

The Children and Parwnts who visited the centre

Today we went on a visit to the recycling center in Lurgan. 

After we had all put on our hi-vis vests and had a quick safety briefing we were shown around all the different sections for various household waste. They told us what some of them are recycled into and a bit about the sheer volume of some waste they receive. 

Did you know that baked bean tins are used to make railway lines??? Or that broken washing machines could be made into stylish lamps? Or that old used cooking oil is made into new usable cooking oil?

The children really enjoyed seeing some of the machinery used on site and pointing out all the different household items they could recognise in each area. 

All the staff were so friendly and engaging. They made the tour very relevant for the children and their parents. 

We've all been made more aware of how we can recycle our everyday waste and help do our but to save our planet.
