Tours of West Sleekburn
If you’ve ever wondered what happens to your recycling, you can find out by visiting our West Sleekburn recycling plant, near Ashington.
It’s free and you will be able to see the entire process from beginning through to when it is ready for dispatch to re-processing plants.
The organised tours are for small groups and must be booked in advance. The tours take roughly two hours and run during working hours from Monday to Friday. The tour is specifically for people over the age of 14 and it is inadvisable for those with pacemakers to attend, due to the use of powerful magnets within the plant and other hazards.
If you’re interested in coming on a tour, please forward your contact details and we can contact you to arrange a convenient time.
