A virtual visit to Gillmoss Materials Recovery Facility.
We are still taking bookings for “Recycling Live!”, a virtual session for Merseyside & Halton's schools and groups that cannot physically visit the Recycling Discovery Centre but still want to engage and learn about the recycling process.
We also have a fabulous range of online Learning Resources that can be done for fun or with your class or group.
We've answered a few questions below but if you have a specific request or need further information, please do not hesitate to contact us. Don’t forget to like and follow us on facebook and twitter via @MerseyRDC to keep up to date with our news.
Frequently Asked Questions - last update 9th April 2021:
