Southwark’s annual Wonder Day will take place on Saturday 17 September, in time to celebrate Recycle Week (12 – 18 September).

Southwark’s annual Wonder Day will take place on Saturday 17 September, Saturday 17 September, 10am to 4pm –  in time to celebrate Recycle Week (12 – 18 September).

On the day there will be tours of the facility so residents can learn first-hand how their recyclables and black bag waste are turned into new green products and energy. There will also be a host of interactive exhibits, games and fun to entertain the whole family:

Come see wild birds up close, and find out how some help out on site
Meet ‘R3cycle’ our friendly remote controlled robot made from old recycling bins who loves entertaining children
Explore the big machines that work on site and learn what they do
Discover the origins of materials, the recycling lifecycle, and play on a mini version of the facility at our Recycling Discovery Centre.

Alongside all this there will be the junk orchestra, arts and crafts and lots of free refreshments!

Coordinator of the event and education and outreach officer Sharon Elis said, ‘It’s going to be a fantastic, fun, and busy event with lots going on for families and the local community to enjoy and celebrate. This year is extra special because it’s Recycle Week and we will be promoting sustainability, as well as offering practical help and advice for those who want to do their best for the environment. Visitors can also get involved in quizzes, play games and win some great prizes to help raise money for FoodCycle.’

Councillor Ian  Wingfield, cabinet member for environment and public realm said: ‘I would highly recommend a visit to the site for a chance to see the modern cutting edge technology behind recycling. It’s a wonderfully quirky day out for the family but also really educational too.’

What residents said about last year’s event:

Anna Fairclough (SE7), ‘The kids look forward to coming every year! This is our second visit and it’s even better.’

David Warwick (SE23), ‘The whole visitor experience was very well thought through and well organised, very impressed.’
