A Day At The Dump

Compactor at Dimmer Landfill Site Compactor at Dimmer Landfill Site

"Everybody should see this!" - is a quote often heard from visitors as they stand at the tipping face of the landfill site at Dimmer.  Now is your chance - so book your place for our day at the dump on 4th September 2019.

Only when you see the sheer enormity of the scale and size of a landfill site can you fully understand how we must all do our bit to try to reduce waste.  Come along and see for yourself how the tip near Castle Cary operates. It is also a great chance to find out how Carymoor Environmental Trust have achieved wonders with their land restoration and habitat creation over the last 20 years.

The visit starts at 2.00pm on Wednesday 4th September 2019 and will last around 2 hours.  There will be a 1-2 mile walk over some uneven ground. 

Cost is £7.50 for CPRE members and £10.00 for non-members, including a cup of tea in the visitor centre. Bring a friend - non-members are very welcome. 

Numbers are limited and places must be booked in advance.
