Rotary Talk – What happens to non-recycling waste?

Tuesday 23 March
Microsoft Teams

So, you’ve put out the bins. The big green is recycled into something else, the little green into fertiliser, and the brown into garden compost. But what happens to all that non-recyclable junk in the black bin?

The Rotary Club of Henley-on-Thames will help you find out  at 6:30 pm on March 23 when environmental scientist Jessica Baker-Pike speaks at an open online meeting: “What happens to non-recycling waste?”

Here’s a hint. The speaker, who is manager at the learning and visitor centre at the Ardley Energy Recovery Facility, will explain how some of it is used to generate power for around 60,000 homes.

The event will be the latest in an ongoing series of opening meetings hosted by Henley Rotary Club on the environment. Previous talks have included how to stop the “plastic soup” in our rivers and streams, Formula E electric-car racing, and what the high street is doing to save the planet.
