Recycling Discovery Centre welcomes 50,000th visitor

Merseyside’s Recycling Discovery Centre at Gillmoss, Liverpool, has reached a landmark by welcoming its 50,000th visitor.

The centre’s education programme, which began in 2009, celebrated reaching the milestone with children from Millbrook Primary School, Knowsley. 

Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority (MRWA) and its contractor resource management company Veolia, who operate Gillmoss Recycling Discovery Centre in Liverpool, have been visited by groups from all over Merseyside and Halton in the last 10 years. 

Councillor Tony Concepcion, chairperson of MRWA, said: “I’m delighted to see that so many  people have taken an interest in our service, learning more about what happens to our waste and recycling after it’s collected from homes.”

Jeff Sears, Director at Veolia, said: “We’re really proud to have welcomed 50,000 visitors. 

“The majority of visitors have been from school groups, so we hope that we have inspired a new generation of recyclers which will see the region’s recycling performance improve for years to come.

“We were glad to welcome Milbrook Primary School to our centre and help us to celebrate this landmark and hoped they enjoyed the visit as much as we enjoyed their company”.

Gillmoss Recycling Discovery Centre offers free visits to education, community and adult groups. Booking is essential and you can book online or find more information at www.veolia.co.uk/merseyside-and-halton
