Site Visits

The classroom is a wonderful place to learn, but there's nothing like getting out and about to see what happens to all our waste when it is collected for recycling and disposal.

Energy-from-Waste Visitor Centre

The energy-from-waste facility at Gt Blakenham makes energy using all the waste in Suffolk that can't be recycled. The new interactive visitor centre offers an opportunity for a tour of the site and it has an education centre which explores waste, energy and the environment. It was designed by award winning company Designmap, who also designed the exhibits for the Cutty Sark. (Children have to be aged 7+)

Please email for more details and to arrange a visit.

Recycling Centres 

Our Recycling Centres (RCs) in Suffolk accept many items for recycling that can’t be collected at home. The RC Education Manager, Sarah Clarke offers a range of talks and activities for schools, including teacher development days, individual class sessions, year groups or eco groups as well as the possibility of arranging a visit to a RC site near you.

Please contact the Education Manager,


Please note there are only limited tours available on a first come first served basis.
