Education Centre at South Kirkby Facility
Renewi and Wakefield Council opened a new purpose built Waste Education and Recycling Education Centre from January 2016! The education centre is based at our state of the art waste facility in South Kirkby. Click here for google maps location.
The centre introduces you to the wonderful world of waste and recycling through interactive exhibits which explore the types of waste generated in Wakefield and the journey that waste takes from entering our facilities to it’s new destination. Did you know that your aluminium cans could potentially end up in an aeroplane?
The education centre is free to visit and open to the public for general viewing. To make the most out of your visit however why not arrange a bespoke visit with some interactive and engaging workshops which demonstrate the importance of the 3Rs (reduce, reuse, recycle). Workshops are always fun but informative. To give you an idea, you might like to get your hands dirty in our wormery and composting area, go on a nature tour in our woodland area or maybe junk re-use crafting is more to your taste?
