Recycling centre trip 2013-14

As part of their Environmental Studies class, transition year students from TY Valley visited the V & W Recycling Centre on the Mell Road. The students were given a tour of the site which included discovering how plastics, metals, glass, wood and paper all are recycled. The students also discovered that the centre will recycle electrical goods such as televisions, computers and toasters for free. On top of this, the students also experienced their unique double decker bus which is covered in over 250,000 aluminum drink cans, and learned about the benefits of recycling over disposing waste into a landfill. Overall the V & W Recycling Centre showed just how easy it is to recycle.
