Recycling and bins education

You can find out more about recycling by watching our videos, coming to our open day or arranging a school talk.

Coming to our open day

We are holding our annual free open day on Saturday 29 June 2019 from 10am and 2pm.

You can come along to find out what happens to all the materials that you put out for recycling collection.

You can also tour our Freighter House depot, view our variety of collection vehicles and enter a competition to win a prize.

Freighter House is also home to our Street care team, who keep 1,400 miles of road and paths clean. The open day also give you the opportunity to meet the team. You can find out how they manage their operations and even sit behind the wheel of a street sweeper.

Freighter House is located at Drovers Way, Chelmsford, Essex, CM2 5PH (behind the Sainsbury’s superstore).

Free visitor parking is available on site. If you need more information, you can visit our  Facebook page or contact us.
