About the tour…

The tour will run from 1.00pm – 3.00pm. The tour will comprise of a visit to a closed landfill site and a nearby landfill gas plant. The landfill site contains over 13 million cubic meters of waste deposited between 1980 and 2001. The landfill site has been restored into a golf course for public use. Underneath the golf course, methane (landfill/greenhouse gas) is still been produced in significant quantities as a result of the continuous breakdown of waste. The methane produced is piped from the landfill to a nearby electricity generation plant that supplies surrounding areas with green electricity.

An excellent example of an environmental solution!
