Environmental Champions new events

Thank you to those that came along to the SVC Beach Clean and Gardening Project at the Riverside Community Allotment last week. They were both great events and we really appreciated you coming along!


We have scheduled in a MRF Tour – next Wednesday 14th March, 3pm

We have a rare opportunity to go on a tour around the MRF (Materials Reclamation Facility) The hi-tech machinery is capable of dealing with 90,000 tonnes of Cardiff’s recyclable waste. We have 6 places on a first come first serve basis. Learn all about how Cardiff is leading the way in recycling and how our walkabouts are making a difference.
