Veolia welcomes residents to Portsmouth Open Day

Residents in Portsmouth and neighbouring areas are invited to take a look behind the scenes at Portsmouth’s Energy Recovery Facility on Tuesday 20 September. Veolia Environmental Services, operators of the site, will be holding the special Open Day and all visitors are welcome.

The event is designed to show how an energy-from-waste facility works and turns waste into a resource. 

During the day visitors can experience:
 •  A behind-the-scenes tour of the facility
 •  A visit to the control room
 •  Educational games for younger visitors
Facility Manager, Charles Winterburn of Veolia Environmental Services said:

“We think this is a great opportunity for our neighbours and local residents to come and explore what happens at our site. We hope people will come to meet us and gain an inside view on how we are working behind the scenes on their behalf!”
Portsmouth Energy Recovery Facility is part of the Project Integra network of waste management infrastructure, designed to handle Hampshire’s household waste and recycling.  In Hampshire just 10% of our waste is sent to landfill – topping the league tables for waste diverted from landfill.
