10th October 2018 - The secret life of Landfill

Documentary on “The secret life of landfill” presented by Dr George McGavin and Dr Zoe Laughlin.

A little bit different to our usual speakers – this month we will be showing a documentary about how what we throw away, tells us about the way we live our lives. With unprecedented access to one of the UK’s largest landfill sites, the team of experts spend three days carrying out tests all over the site, revealing the secret world of rubbish.

With the Javelin Park incinerator still looming ever larger on the Vale horizon, miss this meeting and you’ll never know what happens to the contents of your bin after leaving your home – truly fascinating!
