Recycling Discovery Centre

Offering a unique visitor experience for education, community and uniformed groups.

Gillmoss Recycling Discovery Centre offers FREE visits for you to delve into the world of waste!


Due to the current situation and Government recommendations, Gillmoss Recycling Discovery Centre is temporarily closed to groups until further notice. We are still available for any queries you may have. 

There is a lot going on behind the scenes and our Key Workers are continuing to work hard to manage your recycling and waste. We look forward to announcing when we can resume visits but in the meantime, please stay well and look out for each other.

Thank you

During your experience, you will discover: 

  • What you can recycle at home to help you and your group Recycle Right
  • What is contamination - That’s the wrong things put in the recycling bins!
  • The Journey of Waste from your home to its final destination!

Every visit includes a tour of the state-of-the-art Materials Recovery Facility where you’ll see recycling in action. 


When you book you will be asked to make a written commitment:
To do something back at home or in school after your visit and afterwards tell us how it went!
