The site goes to great lengths to increase recycling and re-use at the site, and in doing so, save the rate payers in our area money. Please sort your waste before coming to the site, if it can be recycled or reused, there will be a place for it at the site, but do not just throw it in the EfW skip.
The Site has, in conjunction with Rotary Club of Douglas, supplied a hot compost bin to all the Western Area Primary Schools, to help with their learning and Biosphere studies, this link gives more details:
