I thought this would be of interest to Doddington residents because it’s a free local event that’s informative and fun.
This year’s ‘Re-Cycling Open Day’ on June 21 at AmeyCespa’s waste management park, on the A10 at Waterbeach, will be a great day for all the family.
With the Tour de France coming to Cambridge, there is a cycling theme to this year’s event, with a cycle try-out around a recycled track and cycle-powered smoothie makers showing how to reduce food waste.
Visitors to the Open Day will be able to see a range of reuse, recycling and composting exhibitions, including cycle repair workshops from Opportunities Without Limits, the Sawston based charity that refurbish bikes. There will also be coach tours of the Waterbeach site to see how Cambridgeshire’s waste is recycled, and walking tours of AmeyCespa’s Mechanical Biological Treatment plant and Materials Recycling Facility.
There will be model-making activities using waste packaging and competitions, including the chance to win bike lights if you bring along household batteries for recycling at the DHL electrical recycling stand.
Entry is free and the event is open from 10am to 4pm. If anyone wants more information about the event, they can call: 01223 861010.
