A first for our Friends – and a timely ‘eco’ visit – because, rather than seeing a garden, our visit is concerned with the environment and managing the Earth’s resources. We will be given a guided tour of the Ardley Energy Recovery Facility, which began operation in 2014, treating 326,300 tonnes of non-recyclable waste each year. It diverts at least 95% of Oxfordshire’s residual municipal waste away from landfill and generates enough electricity to power the equivalent of 60,000 homes. The state-of-the-art Visitor Centre is designed to teach interested adults about sustainable waste management and how energy recovery fits into the waste hierarchy. Refreshments included on arrival.
Friends £15, Guests £20
