Suffolk energy-from-waste (EfW) facility
Wed, April 26, 2017, 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM BST
To reduce the amount of Suffolk’s waste that goes to landfill and the associated cost to council taxpayers, the Suffolk energy-from-waste facility uses the waste left after recycling – from homes and some businesses across Suffolk – to generate enough electricity to power 30,000 homes.
This is a facinating visit and a chance to understand what is a necessary part of our resource management process.
Please be aware on the plant tour we will walk about 1.5km, there are over 300 stairs – up and down. We will climb 23 levels and there are mesh walkways so this tour is not suitable for people with mobility issues or vertigo. We provide water but if you require any other refreshments please bring them with you as these will not be provided.
