AmeyCespa to hold open day at Waterbeach recycling site

RECYCLING firm AmeyCespa holds an open day on Sunday (September 22) to give people an insight into the work done at its Waterbeach premises.

A full tour of the Ely Road site will give visitors the chance to see the company’s Mechanical Biological Treatment (MBT) plant and materials recycling facility, which is currently under construction.

“The tour will also provide an opportunity to understand the composting process and see the scale of the waste challenge at the landfill site,” and AmeyCespa spokesman said.

Mark Shelton, Waste Education Manager for AmeyCespa, said: “The Recycling Open Day is a great chance for residents to find out more about what happens on our site, as well as learn how they can recycle or re-use even more of their waste.

“The event always offers a fun and educational experience for the whole family and each year we try to provide a different range of activities.

“I would urge everyone to come along on the September 22 and find out more about what we do.”

Cambridge Curiosity and Imagination (CCI) will also run a workshop at the free event, which runs between 10am and 4pm, to show people how plastic waste can be put to innovative uses.

Visitors will also be able to see a range of recycling, composting and machinery exhibitions and stands from councils, businesses, community groups and environmental organisations.

Councillor Mathew Shuter, Cabinet Member for Enterprise and Waste at Cambridgeshire County Council, said: “Recycling and reusing the planet’s scarce resources is incredibly important.

“We live in a time when we have a far greater understanding of what we need to do with the waste we produce.

“This is why the chance to visit the Waste Management Park on September 22 is such a good opportunity to learn first-hand about the challenges we all face and I recommend this event to everyone.”
