Have you ever wondered what happens to your black bag rubbish?

Posted on: Friday 10 September 2021

Find out what happens to the rubbish you put in your purple lidded bin by taking a virtual tour aroundViridor’s Trident Park Energy Recovery Facility (ERF).

Trident Park ERF has been operational since 2014, handles around 400,00 tonnes of household non-recyclable waste per year, and diverts at least 95% of South Wales’s non-recyclable waste away from landfill – including Torfaen’s. It also generates 250GWh of electricity for the National Grid, which is enough to power around 68,000 households.

This September, more than 150 of Wales’ historic sites, landmarks and hidden gems will offer visitors free entry, events or guided tours as part of Open Doors.

Open Doors is Wales’ annual contribution to the European Heritage Days initiative, which invites heritage organisations, private owners, local authorities and others to open their doors or offer activities to the public free of charge during September.

Funded and organised by Cadw, the ever-popular festival of Wales’ built heritage will this year, encourage Welsh residents and visitors alike to explore some of the country’s lesser-known and smaller-scale sites ― several of which are usually closed to the public.
