FSB Central Lancashire Branch Members and Guests Meetings Spring 2015

Posted by Ashley Preston, Friday, 6th March 2015 @ 10:43am

  • MARCH 2015

    Visit to Global Renewables

    Wednesday 18th March 2015 – Global Renewables - tours begin at 6:00pm

    Global Renewables, household waste

    For Global Renewables, household waste isn’t rubbish; it’s a valuable resource to be recovered, recycled and reused.

    That’s why they have developed a combination of some of the world’s most effective waste treatment technologies, enabling them to extract the maximum amount of recyclables from the waste stream and turn the environmentally-damaging organic fraction into a high quality type of compost product called Organic Growth Medium (OGM).

    They also produce their own electricity to help run the plant, and collect rainwater for use in the process.

    If you have ever wanted to see what happens to your rubbish join us on a tour of the Global Renewables facility in Leyland. We think you will be both surprised and impressed.  We will enjoy a tour of the facilities and end the evening with light refreshments, networking and a short presentation about selling on Ebay, Amazon and Groupon, given by Julie Hogan of Swiftkleen.

    To book please follow this link:-

    Both Members and Non-Members are welcome at all FSB events.
