Yr3 Trip to the Waste to Energy Plant

This event will take place on 23/03/2023

As part of our Science week activities we are learning about where our rubbish goes and about how we can reduce, reuse and recycle to be more sustainable in our practices. Then to follow up on this, on Thursday 23rd March 2022, year 3 have the opportunity to visit the Waste to Energy Incinerator in Devonport to learn more about how our Plymouth Rubbish is turned into heat and energy. This will be a very informative and interesting trip for your child.
