The RERF removes recyclable waste from household and commercial bins and recovers energy from the remaining waste, reducing the amount of waste sent to landfill. This visit must be pre-booked (booking details below) and may not be suitable for Fellows or members with certain additional accessibility requirements.
Participants will be provided with high visibility vests, hard hats and steel toe capped boots on arrival. There are in excess of 100 stairs and grilled walkways within the operational plant itself, and a reasonable level of fitness is needed to complete the full tour. Fellows and members with respiratory and cardiac conditions may struggle and it is therefore essential that anyone with these, or other physical limitations, make these conditions known at the time of booking so that we can establish what we are able to offer.
To book, contact Laura McNally by email.
