Recycling plant tours

Ever wondered what happens to your recycling after it’s been collected? We offer free tours taking you behind the scenes of our huge recycling plant, run by our waste disposal authority in Wandsworth.

A free minibus service will collect you from a local pick-up point (Hammersmith Town Hall at Riverside Gardens, or Kensington Town Hall) and whisk you off for a behind-the-scenes peek of where the waste arrives, how it is separated, sorted and sent off to be turned into something new.

The tour is likely to be of interest to individual residents, as well as landlords, local residents’ organisations and community groups.

Please register your interest in our tour by completing the form below. Registering your interest does not guarantee you a place on a tour.

We will contact you to let you know which of your preferences is available, and ask you to confirm a place.
