CURIOUS homeowners can tour local waste management facilities as part of National Recycle Week, running from June 18 to 24.

Dix Pit landfill site near Stanton Harcourt, south of Bicester, will open its gates at 10am on Monday, June 18. Milton Keynes Recycling Facility will open at 2pm on Friday, June 22.

Tours have been organised by the Oxfordshire Waste Partnership, and all places must be pre-booked.

Tour co-ordinator Paul Mocroft said: “We’re always being asked where the rubbish ends up, so running these tours is a great way to show people.”
