Living Fuels visited the Waterbeach Waste Management Park in Cambridgeshire last Saturday, to take part in AmeyCespa’s second annual Open Day.
Operations Director Rob Murphy was up at the crack of dawn to set up our booth and have a chat to the visiting people of Cambridgeshire. He said of the event, “It has been a brilliant day; I was surprised at how many people attended the event. The people of Cambridgeshire seem really interested in recycling, and the idea that recycling their used cooking oil could help save the environment and their money. It’s great to see the public taking such an interest in caring for our planet.”
Around 1,800 people attended the event and were able take part in a Ready, Steady Cook style competition using waste foods, view a fashion show of clothes made of reused and recycled materials, and could get behind the wheels of the latest site machinery (though no driving was allowed!).
Mark Shelton, of AmeyCespa (formerly known as Donarbon), explained, “The Recycling Open Day is a great opportunity for residents to see what happens to all their waste, the latest technology for dealing with their rubbish, why it is important to reuse and recycle more and where the materials separated for recycling go through the company stands, plus they have the chance to speak to the many experts who are around on the day to get first hand knowledge about recycling.”
